After an injury ended his career with the National Ballet of Spain, Miguel Ases began exploring his love of design at Madrid's School of Arts. Soon, he traveled to New York to design for Malave Fashion Design where he drew the attention of noted designer Gaetano Fazio. Fazio saw potential in Miguel as a talented artist and asked Miguel to work alongside him as his head designer. Miguel eventually started his own namesake label with great success. Though its roots are in Spain, the Miguel Ases Collection is proudly handcrafted in America. His unique artistry transforms 14K gold-fill, sterling silver, semi-precious stones, fresh water pearls & cultured pearls into brilliant and distinctive pieces of jewelry.
