About

Thanks for stopping by Mel's Art Buffet featuring handcrafted original jewelry. I have always had an innate need to create & have been doing so for as long as I can remember. Creating is my form of meditation where I am able to loose myself & completely let go. I find it necessary to revitalize & refresh my energy. I have a small home studio, emphasis on small & growing smaller by the second, where I handcraft all of the items listed here. My four legged assistant Cash stands faithfully by my side to make sure I uphold the highest standard of quality & once he gives his paw of approval I offer the items to you.

For the past 5 years my focus has been on jewelry. I started going to bead shows & making pieces for myself. One day it occurred to me, as my personal stash began to grow out of control, maybe someone else would like to wear this? I am self taught & anticipate learning the…

For the past 5 years my focus has been on jewelry. I started going to bead shows & making pieces for myself. One day it occurred to me, as my personal stash began to grow out of control, maybe someone else would like to wear this? I am self taught & anticipate learning the next technique which will undoubtedly lead to a world of possibilities. After a sabbatical with sead beads, I am opening the polymer clay door, carefully.

Each day offers new inspiration. Although working a full time job, I am constantly searching for new ideas & count the hours until I can go home to create. Some days I will leave work with 2 or 3 sketches for future projects, these are good days!

This shop has allowed me to showcase my creative efforts and its an honor to have you visit my store. As soon as I learn how to create more hours in the day, I will be expanding beyond jewelry and incorporating my other loves. Look for: scarfs, switch plate covers, wall hangings, mosaics, handmade bowls, and whatever new fancy may come...
