Michelle is a Philadelphia jewelry designer whose high-quality, hand-cut stones, sterling silver, and gold-filled pieces, create a balance between styles of rich detail and modern simplicity.
Her fascination with faceted stones began as a child, when she discovered mica in the dirt of the playground. From there she began collecting rocks and minerals. After working in the fashion industry as a designer and illustrator, she began sewing tiny beads onto handmade greeting cards and book covers. This drew her attention back to the stones, which led to seven years of working with a leading jewelry manufacturer where she learned the ropes of the jewelry industry. Michelle Pressler Jewelry was launched in 2002.
