Micah Hamilton is a jeweler and maker living in Oklahoma City. She creates metal jewelry, textiles, and other craftwork. 

After studying art at University of Central Oklahoma, Micah fell in love with metalsmithing. She thinks of jewelry as wearable sculpture- objects that merge art with functionality. She especially loves that jewelry pieces can hold so much emotional value, becoming cherished heirlooms. When Micah was growing up, she remembers special times when she would look through her mother's or grandmother's jewelry box and ask where each piece came from. Each jewelry piece held some sort of significance; some with a story attached to them.


She also finds much of her inspiration from the mountains, from the smaller sized Wichita Mountains of Oklahoma to the giant Rockies of Colorado. She loves scavenging various rock shops during her mountain travels for materials to use in her jewelry. 

Micah has also recently found a love for weaving and textile art. She learned the basics of weaving on a simple lap loom. Using mostly second-hand yarns, as well as some locally made yarns, she has created meticulously crafted wall hangings, pillows, etc. She has also recently began taking classes to learn to create textiles on a floor loom. She is now growing in her sewing knowledge and skill so she can turn her hand woven fabrics into wearable garments. 

Micah believes that the world has become cluttered with low-quality, mass-produced things that hold no meaning. Her goal is to replace that clutter with handcrafted work that is both beautiful and lasts a lifetime- pieces that will hold stories for the following generations. 


A Life Fully Lived

Micah Hamilton

"You can tell who the strong women are, they're the ones building other women up instead of tearing them down."

I'm super thankful for all the people who have been supporting me and my business. I've been kind of bummed this week after being wrongly accused of stealing jewelry designs from another artist. This person said some very hateful and hurtful things to me that really got me feeling defeated, especially since this was someone I used to really respect. 

But I'm realizing how silly the situation is and how silly it is to let it defeat me. Especially when I'm surrounded by so much support. Any success I've stepped into is only because of the grace of God and the community of supporters and encouragers I have around me. And as I grow in skill, success, influence, etc. my goal is not to slit throats on my way up only to be standing alone at the top. Success to me isn't just making money and becoming well-known. To me, making jewelry isn't just making jewelry. The process of making is part of what makes me feel alive- there is something that has been placed in my heart that isn't fulfilled unless I'm using my hands to create. 

"God is glorified by a life fully lived." -The Vision and the Vow , by Peter Greig

As I grow in who I am, in who God created me to be, the more alive I become, and the more God is glorified through my life. And when people see someone who is fully alive, fully living, it inspires them to fully live as well. I hope that everything I set my hands to do will produce life and I hope the life I live will lead others into their aliveness as well. 

"The glory of God is man fully alive, and the life of man is the vision of God." -St. Irenaeus of Lyons
