Michele Black - metalsmith at large

An accidental 6 year apprenticeship introduced me to the world of small scale metals and changed my life.

Starting as engraver and pearl stringer, in a shop of master jewelers, I learned to solder, laser weld, set stones, cast, and a myriad of other skills.

But my secret desire was to challenge the conventions of fine jewelry. A mobile studio gives me the freedom to do just that. 

Inspired by the landscape of the week, I engineer and create small wearable sculptures for the adventurous.
