Michelle Arsenault: " I discovered precious metal clay a dozen years ago and have been drawn not only to its reclaimed feature but also to the magical alchemy of turning it into fine silver jewelry. I teach and have a studio locally to Baltimore, where I have lived all my life. I have a BSN from the U of M Baltimore, but retired to practice a different art in 2016. I am now a silver artist full time."
