I'm Michelle and I create jewelry using as much recycled silver and upcycled vintage materials as I can. I design a lot of personalized initial and birthstone necklaces, bridesmaid and mommy jewelry. I use recycled precious metal clay, recycled sterling silver, hand sawed sheet metal, dead stock vintage, enamel and new semi-precious gemstones. Really, it's whatever I'm in the mood for that day!
What is precious metal clay? Precious metal clay is recycled silver mixed with an organic binder and becomes .999 fine silver when fired in a kiln. Fine silver is a higher concentration of silver than sterling.
A little more about me: I'm Texas born and raised, but now reside in lovely and bitterly cold Chicago. I went to college for interior and graphic design so anything design is second nature to me! I'm a graphic designer in my day job and love…
