Craftsmanship is something that develops slowly over time through years of steady practice. It is about showing up everyday and doing the same thing over and over.

– Michelle Skiba

Winnie Chai Art Jewelry Studio, Studio 313 at the Shirt Factory in Glens Falls

The Calling

I grew up studying music and literature, worked in graphic design, and then discovered metalwork traveling through Western China, Tibet, Nepal, and India. There, a Tibetan woman’s exquisitely sculpted earrings of coral, turquoise, and gold whispered my name in luminous syllables.

The Work

I make my jewelry with traditional metalsmithing tools and techniques in a bright, welcoming workshop with care and presence. I work intuitively, enjoying the materials’ tactile, visual, and energetic resonance. My recent work pairs hand bead-woven elements with gold, silver, and extraordinary gemstones – particularly natural druzies, sapphires, and diamonds.
