My name is Michelle and I am originally from Alabama now residing in Las Vegas. I have worked for both American Gem Society Lab (AGSL) and the Gemological Institute of American (GIA). I enjoy older jewelry and a collector of Cameos in all forms. As a Gemologist, I study all gemstones, test stones, prepare stone ID reports on Antique and Period Jewelry and use older pieces of jewelry and design and incorporate them into new pieces or special collection pieces. I have an online store cameocalamity.com. Its a twist of new and old/past jewelry to present day pieces - collections, both fine jewelry and fashion jewelry, accessories and objects of art.
