ABOUT THE ARTIST
My name is Michele and I'm a metalsmith artist. I've spent the past 14 years focusing on creating custom jewelry and work as a full-time jeweler. I was born and raised in Minneapolis, MN and soon decided there was more to life than just winter and road construction. I ventured off to Phoenix, AZ where I spent time creating designs which were sold through trade shows and galleries around the country.
I currently reside in Tucson, AZ. I wake up every morning and go to work in my studio overlooking Mount Lemmon. I am so lucky to be able to do something I enjoy surrounded by such beautiful nature.
For several years, I focused on lapidary artistry, cutting and polishing my own cabochons used to create one-of-a-kind pieces. My work now focuses on custom jewelry designs using eco-friendly, recycled and reclaimed sterling silver and gold. I use only natural and genuine high quality gemstones in my creations and all diamonds used in my work are conflict-free stones.
I am blessed to have such a wonderful customer base and look forward to each new opportunity to design that special piece just for you.
