She then studied with Olaf Skoogfors and Stanley Lexon. Michele has retired from silversmithing and is now concentrating on her painting and sketching. She resides on Orcas Island in the Washington, San Juan Islands. We are fortunate to have her as a sister and have her work in our studio.
Annabel grew up in the Lake District in England, which instilled a love of nature that is reflected in the jewelry she creates. She originally studied graphic design but after a couple of jewelry making classes she was hooked. Her designs are intricate in detail and she uses a variety of traditional techniques. We love having her work in our studio and many of our customers seek out her designs.
