Michele Dodge's Profile
Welcome! My shop can be found here: http://lavajewelry.etsy.com
A geologist by training, I've always had a love for color, design, texture, and working with my hands. Geology plays a strong role in my jewelry through my use of natural gemstones. I strive to appreciate and celebrate the variety found in nature by choosing gemstones with character.
I like to describe my jewelry as "earthy elegance." I am drawn both to the earthiness of natural gemstones and to the elegant gleam of curving polished sterling silver. Although synthetic gemstones and dyed glass can be extremely beautiful, they do not hold the same allure for me as natural gemstones with all of their charming flaws.
I received my Jewelry Technician diploma from Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco, and I am also a GIA Accredited Jewelry Professional…
