Residing in Daytona Beach, Michelle has been active in the region’s art societies, museum programs, and fine art shows. In September of 2008 and June 2009, she was the featured artist with the Florida Committee of NMWA. Her artwork is featured in PASTA fine arts gallery, St. Augustine, Emmon’s Cottage, Ormond Beach, and MOAS.
Michelle’s artwork, glass, and jewelry encompasses “fused dimensions” as it uses avant garde techniques and materials. The fused glass pendants she makes are hand cut dichroic glass, that is fired in a kiln and wire wrapped in fine gold or sterling silver wire.
Fused Dimensions new line of jewelry is made with found objects: vintage pins, earrings and assorted pieces from markets and antique stores combined with eclectic bottle caps, computer parts, watch parts, and other unique items. Michelle’s pieces are combined using cold connections with rivets, brads, and wire. They are then sealed with resin and varnish.
Michelle prefers found object jewelry because every piece she makes has a story to tell. “Through the found objects, and the vintage copyright free images, each character I create has a whimsical life that’s waiting to be discovered by someone.”
Michelle will be conducting an interactive demo showing how to make a bottle cap pendant during The HallowGreen!TM. Donations are $1 and all proceeds will be given to the Fair Share Urban Garden Project.
