Her jewelry is equisitly handcrafted and beautiful ! I am the proud owner af the Sterling Silver Dragonfly Charm Necklace and I love it ! 5 Stars - Google Reviews

Gudrun, Google Reviews

I had the pleasure of meeting Michele first hand. For me, the pin represents our meeting as well as something else that is more personal to me. In Silicon Valley, where my office is located, formal wear is rarely worn, so I have been keeping the pin on my backpack instead of a lapel; I will be wearing it instead of a tie next time I wear something more formal though - its simplicity is part of its elegance. For me, the pin has come to represent the idea that I am contributing to something bigger than myself the way a bee contributes to the betterment of the hive for the sake of the colony. So thank you for this beautiful and humbling reminder. 5 Stars - Google Reviews

I love her stuff! Amazing quality, designs and prompt service. The jewelry is so well crafted and artistic. I have one of her Hummingbird necklaces and get compliments on it every time I wear it. Just bought an adorable Dragonfly Charm for a friend. Was very pleased with the quick service, it arrived in perfect time for her birthday. She was thrilled! 5 Stars - Google Reviews
