Today’s Jet of the Day is Michele, lovingly known as Malves 1009, who runs the shop Handmade by Michele on Etsy.com
A simple gesture of having been given a crystal necklace by her mother began the career of this talented jewelry maker. Loving the way it sparkled, she was hooked.

Today, she is a mother and a wife, and one of those women who cause me to scratch my head and think, “How does she do it all?”. But, lucky for us, she manages to fit making jewelry in, and with a fantastic eye for design.

Michele creates lovely handmade and affordable, vintage inspired jewelry featuring Swarovski and Czech crystals, pearls, Bohemian faceted glass stones, and Czech glass beads. These beautiful gems are artistically paired with sterling silver and gold filled metals, and base metals as well. In addition to jewelry, Michele designs a small collection of accessories.

Much of the collection has a vintage-inspired feel. However, many of the components Michele uses are actual vintage or antique pieces.
Michele stands behind her quality made pieces and manages to keep them affordable for those at any budget. Whether you are looking for an everyday piece, a “black tie” piece, or a custom design for the wedding of your dreams, you will benefit from Michele’s creativity and talent and will own a piece of vintage inspired handmade jewelry that will last for years to come.
