"Being a gemologist and jewelry designer myself, I have an appreciation for fine work in other designers. Michele's creativity in wire wear is exceptional. It is no wonder, too, it can take her hours just to choose a few gems with which to work! Every piece she designs is truly a work of art. I guarantee that if you buy one of her creations you will be complimented over and over each time you wear it!"
