This week I decided to do some testing with the sliced ivory palm that I had in my studio. They are very fine and delicate, resembling petals. Thus I decided to make some flowers using the "petals". I also made other necklaces using the slices composed with other materials.

I could not describe better her inspirations, thoughts and emotions. The way Michelle tells us how she developed this series deserves to be quoted with no edition!
"Morning Meditations is a continuation of the Drawing Series I began in 2006. Drawing, specifically, lines, shadows, and reflected light are the subjects of this collection of work. Similar to jewelry, lines, shadows, and light can express the ephemeral, intuition, memory, and emotion.
I use crocheted nylon, Plexiglas, and 22-karat gold leaf to create a visual diary of these patterns. I find the rhythm of crocheting as a hypnotic and meditative act in drawing. Each looped stitch marks a moment in time, a thought, and emotion. Some of my stitches are very open and loose; others are smaller and compact. As I crochet, I play with the materials and I allow the patterns to evolve organically. The nylon forms and drawings that grow off my crochet hook always pleasantly surprise me.
When worn these pieces are transported into diverse environments and the wearer’s movements alter how the light falls on the crocheted drawings and the gold leaf. This movement affects each shadow and reflection and transforms the appearance of the piece as it moves through space.
Jewelry is the format of these ephemeral illustrations because of its historical and cultural use to evoke memories and emotions. As jewelry, Morning Meditations allows the wearer to carry a physical reminder of the quiet stillness of the early morning with them throughout their day."

Ela é conhecida pelas suas "esculturas funcionais", como diz o artigo, como puxadores de gaveta e luminárias artsy. No entanto, mais recentemente, vem conquistando o público de Manhattan pelas suas jóias esculturais, feitas de cobre oxidado, ouro e prata.
