Michele Thomas

Michele Thomas a Texas Hill Country artist.Michele Thomas is an artist living in Bergheim, Texas with her husband and menagerie of cats, dogs, horses and turkeys. Having lived in Texas most of her life, she is inspired by the organic natural beauty that surrounds her Hill Country home. Each piece of Michele’s hand-crafted, fine jewelry was inspired by nature: the hot winds of a south Texas summer; the cool water of the Guadalupe River; the fire and light of precious metals and natural stones. She often uses wildlife as inspiration by duplicating the color combinations seen in nature.

Michele has a background in drawing and earthenware designs where she first started creating jewelry from clay before turning to new materials. She currently works in several mediums, including: precious metals, genuine gemstones and metal clay. Many of Michele’s pieces are created with cold connections by wire wrapping. Other pieces are constructed from metal clay which is either fine silver and/or 22k gold. She wants each piece to have an intrinsic value as well as NATURAL beauty and often incorporates natural gems and/or 24k gold into her pieces.
