Inspired by the duality of the ballerina herself, this tutu is poise meets power, artistry meets achievement, desire meets dedication, passion meets performance and tutu meets tux.

MICALLA was born in 2007 when a close friend of Danish-born designer Camilla Jørgensen was diagnosed with cancer. Jørgensen foresaw difficult times and chose to engage her friend in designing and making jewellery during her regular visits to the cancer ward. Blessedly, her friend recovered and for Jørgensen, the jewellery making stuck. MICALLA jewellery has adorned beauties walking many a red carpet, including the Golden Globes, Toronto International Film Festival, and the Gemini Awards and has been featured on magazine covers and photo shoots.
