Michelle Pajak-Reynolds is a couture jewelry designer and her history with jewelry goes all the way back to her origin story of her parents meeting and falling in love across a jewelry case. Michelle handcrafts her creations in gemstones, pearls, and recycled precious metals, and in this episode, we chat about being connected to the earth and humanity through wearable art. We also discuss the births and deaths that occur in the process of designing Michelle’s extraordinary jewelry.
Michelle gives us some book recommendations of STONED: Jewelry Obsession and How Desire Shapes the World by Aja Raden and Gems in Myth Legend and Lore by Bruce G. Knuth.
