About MichelleLenaeJewelry

On Etsy since 2008

My path to becoming a goldsmith and jeweler

At a young age I discovered my passion for construction. While my mom attended church, I would sit in the office for hours constructing paper cities and neighborhoods from index cards and tape.

About ready to graduate with a BA in Interdisciplinary visual arts I was finally accepted into an introductory metals course ran by the legendary Mary Lee Hu. I was completely hooked after our first class and 2 years later in 2003 I graduated BFA in Metals and Jewelry fabrication.

I strive to push myself daily as an artist and metalsmith, furthering my education in a richly historic and fascinating field. I love exploring new metals, techniques and hypnotizing myself with stunning gemstones and minerals. Innately, I'm a hoarder (I blame it on my grandmother who doesn't have a blank space on her wall) so I end up collecting stones for years before I finally let them go and turn them into a piece of jewelry. One of my biggest inspirations is knowing that people will treasure their jewelry, hopefully for generations, and pass their treasures down to their children and grandchildren.

I source most of my gemstones found world-wide, from domestic suppliers who share the same passion for ethical business and trade practices. All gemstones are purchased either from US mines and International mines that work as transparent and conscious as they can to mine and trade responsibly and sustainably. All metals I use are 100% recycled either purchased from a refiner, or recycled in-house by me. I offer my clients in-house recycling/reclaiming and re-purposing of their old jewelry.

I believe that jewelry is an expression, not just an accessory. It is art that adorns the body expressing history, culture, tradition, hope, friendship and love. It's because of those expressions that creating jewelry for lasting integrity and designing personal and meaningful jewelry is paramount to me as an artist and personal jeweler.
