Michelle Pilkington is a jewellery designer-maker whose work has been exhibited in around the UK. An experienced teacher, she draws on her multidisciplinary background and wide skills in traditional crafts.
Michelle specialises in designing and making contemporary, vintage wire, metal and beadwork jewellery which includes the use of clay, silk, paper, glass and recycled pieces. Her teaching focuses on the use of recycled tin and copper, inexpensive metals which allow for experimentation and can also be transformed into unique jewellery pieces. This allows for skills to be well developed before advancing to more precious metals. See more of Michelle’s work in her etsy shop.
