Meet the Artist
My name is Michaela Smith. I am a 21 year old college student based in a small town in South Carolina. I've always used creative outlets to express myself, but making wire wrapped jewelry is one of my strongest passions and is therefore what I fill most of my time with these days.
I have collected crystals my whole life. I'm sure I inherited my appreciation for them from my mom and grandmother who are collectors themselves. I didn't begin experimenting with making my crystals wearable until I was about 18. At that point, I was not very good, and would just make wire wrapped pendants for my friends. Eventually, I became infatuated with this art form and devoted more and more of my time to it. I see myself improve with each new piece, and my love for wire wrapping grows each day.
When I am not busy wire wrapping, studying, or in a classroom, I love spending time in the outdoors. This includes hiking, kayaking, or just hanging out with my dog Mowgli.
