About Me

My  name is Michelle Blunk. A few years ago, one of my best friends from college introduced me to the art of beaded jewelry making. We are both Interior Designers by education and career and have that creative, stylish flair. She took me to my first bead store and I spent $100 on something that was foreign to me. She taught me the basics and the rest fell into place. Before I knew it, I had created more jewelry than I could ever wear in a lifetime. Friends, co-workers and even strangers began complimenting me on my jewelry and asking where I had purchased it. Of course, I was more than willing to mention that I had made it myself, and soon I had a small, yet loyal following. I would get phone calls weekly asking if I had a catalog or website. Because I didn't have either, I would offer to bring my jewelry to their homes or invite them to my home. As much as I loved the interest, these offers had me running all over town. At the time I was a full time commercial interior designer, had a husband, 2 children and one on the way.

My husband and I sat down to discuss whether this could actually turn into something successful. He suggested selling my jewelry at "in home" parties. I contacted a couple of my clients for their feedback and right away, I had three shows scheduled for three very enthusiastic clients.

Since then, I've given birth to our third child, continued my interior design on a part time basis and fit in 3-4 in home jewelry shows a month. I feel like I've met so many fun, interesting and creative people through the shows, but think there are so many others out there that haven't gotten a chance to see my work.

This is where the website comes in. Please look around, email me or call me. If you have comments, suggestions, are looking for something you can't find on here, let me know. I'd love to meet you!
