Artist Spotlight for Michelle Zjala Winter at The Gift Itself
Saturday September 15th 2018 from 5 pm-8 pm
Snacks and refreshments will be served
Co-founder of The Gift Itself, Michelle Zjala Winter, will be showcasing a collection of her new line of fine jewelry.
Michelle has been making jewelry since high school. Her first creation was almost 40 years ago. Since then she has shown her work in art shows and galleries, including: Amman, Jordan; Door County, Green Bay, and Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Illinois and Michigan.
Most of her jewelry creations are fabricated using traditional techniques and the use of modern technology and tools. She takes flat, raw materials, such as sheet and wire, in sterling silver, gold and copper. She cuts, bends and solders them together to create her designs. She loves to use surprising materials such as Door County Beach stones captured in fabricated “boxes”, or reclaimed piano keys. Precious and Semi-precious gemstones also play an important role in her jewelry. Gemstones, both faceted and cabochons of jasper, tourmaline, labradorite and turquoise are favorites, and many times when she sees a stone she already has an idea of what she will create with it.
“Pieces of jewelry can represent a memory, hold a dream for the future, a symbol, a message for the wearer or for the world to share. I hope you enjoy wearing your Myska Design jewelry.” –Michelle Zjala Winter (Myska is the polish word for mouse, my childhood nickname).
