Portrait of metal jewellery instructor Michelle

Many are surprised that Michelle had a background in science with a PhD in Microbiology! Jewellery making began as a hobby to destress from her work in the lab but grew into a passion for hand-crafting her own beautiful jewellery pieces.

In 2014 Michelle joined JDMIS as a student and has since completed Advanced Certifications in Fashion Jewellery and Metal Arts. She has also been working hard to transition into jewellery full-time, building her own brand Glow ByM Jewellery Design and growing a successful jewellery business. In 2021 Michelle also joined the Creative Jewellery Studio community, helping to coordinate events and designer activities.

Her meticulousness in the lab has certainly translated into her work with jewellery crafting. Here are some stunning examples of her work:
