Michele has been a member of the Club for a number of years and started out taking a lapidary class. She quickly followed this with a beginner silversmithing course and found her passion with developing jewellery designs that use stone and silver. Michele currently sits on the KLMC Board of Directors as President and Board Chair. She thoroughly enjoys teaching beginner and intermediate silversmithing and chainmaille courses, as well as hosting open shop when her schedule allows. Michele also fills the role of promoting the Club and Gem Storm on social media. Michele's passion has been to create a unique line of jewellery that is eye catching, long lasting and appeals to women of all ages as wearable art. You'll often see Michele and her one of a kind "JDM Jewelry Designs by Mikki" at local artisan shows and our Metal Rocks Shows.
