A graduate of Massachusetts College of Art, Michele has been designing and hand fabricating jewelry for 25 years. Through her artistic vision, Michele has created a prolific collection of contemporary jewelry that is minimal, clean and modern. Her design process is a careful selection of proportion and scale that results in timeless designs that enhance the inherent beauty of the wearer. Michele always makes her work by hand, and this brings a softness and human touch to her geometric designs. Her work is meticulously crafted out of silver, gold, palladium and platinum, and she incorporates a variety of unusual precious stones.
Wedding, Engagement, and Custom Designs
Michele has a wide range of wedding and engagement rings in various materials on display for clients to try on. Michele makes all of her work out of 100% recycled Harmony Metals from Hoover & Strong. If you need a specific size diamond or another gemstone it can be sourced based on your specific needs. She also encourages her clients to recycle gold jewelry and family gemstones they no longer wear to put towards the creation of their projects. She can craft custom settings using clients’ heirloom stones. Michele’s wedding and engagement collection is made to order in your exact ring size. A project will take between two and six weeks to complete, depending on its complexity.
The studio practices reflect environmental sustainability. All metal filings are carefully collected and recycled.
