Trade: vintage finder/modern designer
Locale: Ravenswood, Chicago
“I take inspiration from the materials I find and the designs happen naturally. I don't have any soldering set up in my studio, so I have to get creative about my composition. It makes the process more interesting.”
We know it too well: the heartbreak of broken vintage jewelry. But instead of keeping a trinket graveyard, Michelle started making modern creations from her broken pieces. And since she worked in a boutique at the time, she put some of them up for sale. Things took off right away – and that was 7 years ago.
