Michelle is influenced by the everyday, the natural and manufactured world around her where the banal intersects with the extraordinary. She is passionate about colour line and form. Using many different common materials; wire, shock cord, silicone, textiles, and a variety of beads elevating them to uncommon grounds.
Using her hands and some basic tools like pliers and scissors she works intuitively, bending and sculpting her materials. Presently she is working on the ideas on “connections”, metaphorically and physically. Adopting new ways to connect materials as well as contemplating on how we connect as humans. In our world where we are all connecting virtually it is even more important for us to connect physically. Miller loves the idea that her jewellery can be used as a touch stone for that connection. Jewellery is a conduit for Miller to connect with her audience
