Hi! I'm Michelle, I'm so happy to have you here.
I began making jewelry in 2009 on the floor of a friend's living room. Myrrh Handmade Jewelry quickly became a substantial part of my identity, and a way for me to navigate the world as a single parent. In 2014, the bottom fell out of my life and I knew I would never be the same. After navigating the trauma of that time, I emerged with a toolkit full of resources. I made a commitment that no one would ever go through what I went through alone, and lead an introduction to more mainstream Astrology, Divination, and Feminine Spirituality in Little Rock, Arkansas. After 10 years of making jewelry, I transitioned into hosting moon circles, providing readings, and leading workshops. In 2018, I began my yoga training journey in order to integrate my knowledge and become a more effective leader and teacher.
Today, I've come full circle, returning to my jewelry making roots and using creativity as a tool to create joy in my life and the lives of others. I have begun sharing bits and pieces of my journey on Substack, and hope to use this tool to not only process finding my way, but provide insight and healing inspiration to others. I share my journey in the hopes that something I say will reach the person who needs it--even if that's only one person. All of the tools acquired over the last 8 years helped pull me up to become who I am today, a more whole authentic version of myself, and many of them are rituals that will stay with me forever.
There is an essence of who you are, the inner most part of you, that is already completely whole. I am here to acknowledge this essence in myself in an effort to help others find their own. My main focus is acceptance, validation, and radical self compassion, while remaining conscious and informed of trauma, loss, and privilege. Self love, grace, and resilience are my ultimate goals, and I believe they cultivate more love and service to others.
