Inspired by couture fashion, literature, nature, and her travels around the world, Michelle Pajak-Reynolds possesses a love and tradition of artisanal hand-craftsmanship. The artist considers designing to be a sacred creative journey, and her collections invite viewers to explore and be inspired by a sense of wonder and beauty.
Handcrafted from gemstones, pearls, and recycled precious metals in the artist's Ohio studio, Pajak-Reynolds's creations are feminine and ethereal art to wear that stirs the soul. In addition to designing her signature collections, Pajak-Reynolds works one-on-one with collectors to create breathtaking one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry.
Pajak-Reynolds began designing jewelry at age 5 after being inspired by the power bracelets worn by Lynda Carter in the Wonder Woman TV series. Largely self-taught as a child, her formal jewelry training began in high school, and she went on to perfect her artistic and business skills via a BFA in jewelry from Kent State University and an MBA from Baldwin-Wallace University.
