Michèle turned her collectors passion for all things that have a story to tell into an inspired handmade custom jewelry business, Storie in Italy, more than 12 years ago. A collector of period items like a 40's airplane bike headlight, to turn-of-the-century black madonnas and relics, Michèle continues to scour antique markets up and down the coast to find just the right pieces to embellish Storie in Italy designs, bringing new life to forgotten relics and century old curios.
