The fairy tale of Thumbelina, by Hans Christian Andersen, tells the story of a thumb-sized girl finding her way in the world. Kidnapped by a toad, Thumbelina escapes by hopping on a lily pad and harnessing a butterfly. The broad leaf floats freely on the current, and easily supports the weight of tiny Thumbelina, looking for all the world like she is the flower blooming from the center. She is headed for many thrilling adventures, including an encounter with a very handsome flower fairy prince. And of course, they live Happily Ever After.
When Michele Scholnick was a kid, she may have dreamt of being a ballerina, but jewelry designer didn’t cross her mind ’til some years later. She had passed a major deadline in her political science grad program, and decided on a whim to take some art classes. She tried glassblowing, graphic design, and jewelry. Somehow, even though she didn’t wear much jewelry at the time, Michele got hooked in two weeks.
Michele designs and creates her fabulous pieces in her studio in Venice, California. Within a two-minute walk from her studio, she can find any three of her current favorite meals: sushi, Argentinian tapas, or freshly-made, cinnamon-sugar-dusted mini-donuts. In her spare time, Michele likes to dance salsa, read fiction, and walk her dog, June, on the beach.
