Michelle Machara's Profile
Welcome, I'm Michelle and this is my shop of artisan jewelry. I discovered my love for creating jewelry while in high school when I took my first class in jewelry design and fabrication. A graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida, I've worked in the design field for several years.
Some of my work is influenced from my Scandinavian roots. Several pieces I design are modern versions of the Scandinavian folk art that was found everywhere in my home as a child. The rustic look and organic feel of my jewelry embraces nature and adds the touch of handmade.
I live in Florida with my husband, our two sons and a menagerie of critters.
