March 2019 Release!
HELLO, AND WELCOME!
I’m Michelle Atkinson and I run Jewelnotes from my studio in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I create one-of-a-kind glass jewelry, home decor and sculpture inspired by nature and magic.
Each piece of my jewelry is a little slice of fantasy captured for the wearer to enjoy. We all believed in magic when we were young and my jewelry aims to keep that dream alive with a little sparkle and a little fun.
Belle Armoire Jewelry Magazine
I have two articles in the Spring edition of Belle Armoire Jewelry.
Next time you venture into Indigo have a peak at the Art section of specialty magazines for this issue. I’ve written a bit of an “about the artist” article as well as a high level “how-to” on electroforming.
The magazine is filled with beautiful jewelry and I get the pleasure of sharing the pages with a couple of my favourite artists.
Lisa (market customer)
Michelle balances quality, creativity and fine craftsmanship into gorgeous pieces I could wear all day, every day. I don’t tire of wearing my Jewelnotes necklaces and earrings. They change with every colour I wear them on, with every type of lighting I wear them in, and from whatever angle they are viewed. How can you get bored with that?
Chris (market customer)
I saw Michelle at a market and was intrigued by her work. She convinced me to buy a gift ‘just because’ for my wife. I’m definitely in the good books with my wife now (and I took all the credit). Michelle’s pieces are beautiful and affordable, so guys like me can impress ‘just because.’
Jill (market customer)
I’ve bought a lot of Jewelnotes glasswork and jewellery over the years – for myself and for others – and will continue to do so because Michelle’s work sparks so much joy in me. It’s an extra added bonus that I get to support a local artist and entrepreneur. My favourite Jewelnotes piece is a recycled glass jewellery bowl in which I keep my favourite rings and earrings. I like it so much, I’m going to buy another!
