MICHELLE HOERDEMANN - DESIGNER, ARTIST, CREATOR - of- JEWELRY SCULPTURES BY MICHELLE
Hand sculpted and carved jewelry designs created by Michelle Hoerdemann, "Elegance With An Edge".. She is a self taught artist who has been creating jewelry for nearly 20 years. Her work crosses back & forth along the lines of Art and Fashion Accessories. She works with porcelain clay in order to be able to create any shape or size as well as use a variety of items to make unique imprints into the clay. She enjoys the whole process of creating something from nothing. A raw piece of clay eventually becomes a delicate piece of jewelry that looks like pure gold. She has available about every color you would ever need. Every design is finished with 22kt yellow or white gold overlays.
Another piece of the joy Michelle gets from her art is listening to her clients talk about what they think an abstract design looks like, since many designs come form what her eye sees as appealing and unusual she may not see what her clients do.
