Launch Party for the Michelle Leonardo Design Jewelry Collection

June 20, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

We are pleased to announce the official launch of the Michelle Leonardo Design Jewelry Collection, Thursday evening June 20th at the Wilmette Wine Cellar. Michelle Leonardo is the founder, principal designer and is also a local Wilmette resident.

Her collection of exquisite beaded jewelry is made in a sophisticated graphic style of beadwork which many have not seen before—photos in attached pdf. She uses the finest Japanese and Czech glass beads and combines them together to make incredible statement jewelry pieces. Michelle leads a team of 8 highly skilled beaders to handcraft each piece with precision. Her high fashion jewelry collection will be on display and for sale for the first time during the party.

In Michelle’s work, textural and graphic patterns are common themes, as are distinctive designer touches. Influences from nature and places Michelle has traveled provide inspiration in her work, especially beautiful beaches and the turquoise color of the ocean. Michelle brings her former background as an award winning creative in advertising, and a full talent based scholarship for graphic design, to her new roll as jewelry designer. Last year she had the honor of her jewelry gracing the cover of 3 jewelry magazines.

Michelle Leonardo Design jewelry will be initially be sold both online and at high end art shows. On Friday June 21st, the day after the launch party, the website will be refreshed and all jewelry will go on sale to the public on MichelleLeonardoDesign.com. Additionally, Michelle Leonardo Design has just been chosen by a juried selection to participate in the prestigious One of a Kind Show taking place in downtown Chicago at the Merchandise Mart, December 5-8th 2019.

To celebrate this long awaited new business launch, five wines have been specifically paired to match the beautiful jewelry. The Wilmette Wine Cellar is located in the heart of downtown Wilmette, 1100 Central Avenue, Wilmette, IL 60091.
