Michele White, artist and owner of Artisan Alchemy Gallery, is an acclaimed British contemporary jeweller, designer and maker producing innovative and progressive collections in precious metals and gemstones.
From the beginning my philosophy in jewellery making and design has been that it should be a mixture of art and craft. I drew much of my inspiration from the Art Nouveau movement, particularly the philosophy of René Lalique, mixing gemstones of great value with others of great beauty but little value. My jewellery has an organic movement. I use gemstones, both precious and semiprecious with gold and silver… I try to combine beauty and function.
