about our designer

 
 
Although I am a lifelong resident of Connecticut, my travels have taken me to thirty-five states, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and most recently Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Croatia and Turkey.  Whether walking the shoreline in Milford or alleys of Florence, the simple beauty of everyday life always inspires me.


From my early childhood and on, I have always been compelled to express myself creatively. Drawing, painting, ceramics and playing my flute are a few of the activities that occupied my free time. As a teenager, I discovered and immediately became passionate towards photography as a means of artistic expression.  I have worked in freelance photojournalism, portrait and wedding photography.  However it is when traveling that I become lost in my own world behind the viewfinder.  This special bond that I feel towards my camera is what you will find on my other website, www.michellemkelly.com (currently under development).  Images from my walkabouts with my Nikon.


However, over the past several years I began creatively expressing myself by designing and crafting beaded jewelry. The virtually unlimited supply of colors, shapes and textures that are found in beads provides me with a seemingly infinite number of design ideas. As time progressed, what initially started out as a hobby with the encouragement of friends and family has evolved into a flourishing business.  I take pride in providing handcrafting expertise, attention to detail, high quality materials and eye pleasing aesthetics to every piece that I create.  My designs are one of a kind and frequently customized, so each wearer will have a piece that won’t be found on anyone else.


Thanks for visiting and I hope to hear from you soon.
