"My jewelry is unique because there is a spirit of female empowerment that is threaded through each process. Every piece is made with the idea that jewelry can both physically and symbolically strengthen the wearer"
With childhood dreams of becoming a olympic gymnast, a serious back injury during at a national competition left 12 year old Michelle incapable of much movement. Always one to find strength in adversity, she points to that moment as the beginning of her passion for making jewelry. Now, she is still creating tiny, handmade sculptures which she hand-carves, cuts, and polishes. Each piece to reflects on how universal beauty comes from embracing nature, equality, strength, and equality. < less
