Designs by Mikel Giveaway





Designs by Mikel is an AMAZING shoppe driven by the creativity of Mikel [did you guess that?]. She makes seriously gorgeous pieces, and has a lot of her own heart in each one. Here is a little more about her...

I have been an artist as long as I can remember. Art has always been away for me to express myself in ways that words never totally could. Thankfully, I was raised in a home where my mother encouraged my creativity. From there, I got a BA in Fine Art and Graphics, and am one math class short of an architectural engineering degree. I love to paint, draw, sew, crochet, bead, create pottery, and Photoshop. I have written many tutorials which were published online for several years. About anything I create these days has 15 to 20 years experience behind it. I am waiting to really find my muse, at the moment, jewelry, crochet, and sewing have taken a forefront.

I have been a single mother much of my life, and it’s been a necessity to pursue avenues of income that were stable. I have been a graphic designer, interior designer and I think my most favorite, flight attendant. As far as where I am from, I definitely am a gypsy. My great, great grandfather founded Woods Cross so my family’s base is the Salt Lake Valley. I live with my wonderfully romantic and sweet husband and my yellow lab Tessa. My daughter is married and in school. Health issues have recently forced me to be on a medical leave from work. This has presented a unique time in my life. Time I have never had before. Time for me. J And yes... it still feels a little selfish.

I am on a journey to create! I want to inspire and help others create. It is a time for me to bond with other women, make new friends, and celebrate life. I am enjoying getting to know so many wonderful people who have shoppes on etsy, or sell at boutiques. I am amazed and inspired by the business sense and the talent! I definitely am the shy, introverted artist type, but working on expanding my personality because sometimes it has kept me from leaping when I am inspired.

It is my prayer that all women know how beautiful they are! I think it can be easy to sell ourselves short and forget truly how much we all have to give.


Designs by Mikel also makes these amazing cuffs for women’s empowerment. 20% of each sale goes to the Rape Recovery Center. What better way to spend your money than to help other women, and get a gorgeous cuff at the same time?
