Michele moved in 1992 to Los Angeles where she works as a Costume Designer and Illustrator for Film. Through the years, Michel has designed many films. Her credits include:"The Air I Breathe" with Brendan Frazer, Forest Whitaker, Andy Garcia, Kevin Bacon, Sarah Michelle Gellar, "Training Day" with Denzel Washington, "Harsh Times" starring Christian Bale, Freddy Rodriguez and Eva Longoria, and "Confidence" with Ed Burns, Dustin Hoffman, Andy Garcia.
It was during the Premiere of "Confidence" at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival, that actor/director, Ed Burns showed Michele that he was still wearing the chain and charm that she had specially designed for him, that propelled her to opening an online store where she could sell her pieces.
"I enjoy designing pieces that I would wear, or that I would love to receive as a gift from a loved one. For me jewelry has so many meanings and expressing them is what motivates my creativity. Creating a collection or a one-of-a-kind piece makes me always think about the person that will wear it - what it says about them and how will they wear it. I love classic styles with a twist, something that can become part of my collection through the years. Although fashion trends are constantly evolving, there is something about classic beauty that just with a little bit of re-visiting can appear fresh, sophisticated and in vogue and that is what my style is about. I like to design around shapes of stones, beads, pearls and I particularly like to cut through silver, as you can see in some of my pieces. On quiet afternoons I enjoy so much to work on wax. It reminds me of the Etruscans and my days in Rome. I constantly create new designs and if I feel compelled to wear them over and over again, then I start production".
