Kumihimo Necklaces, Kumihimo Bracelets, Handmade Artisan Jewelry, Abstract Paintings

Hi, I am Melanie. Mom to four wonderful kiddos. I am a jewelry designer and abstract painter. I have a crush on Lil Wayne. My favorite word is AwesomeSauce. I take my Japanese Chin, Lord 'Lil Wayne Barkington the Third, everywhere I go. I sometimes like my dog better than people. ;)

Why am I here?
Artists make horrible sales people. It's a curse. I can create, find inspiration everywhere, but the moment someone wants to engage in conversation about my work, and {insert awkward silence here}. This year, I wanted to see if I could push myself and become a self representing artist. I figured if I couldn't pull it off, it was time to head off to law school or the corporate world. Shudders.

This year, I wanted to see if I could push myself and become a self representing artist. I figured if I couldn't pull it off, it was time to head off to law school or the corporate world. Shudders. I thought online, Etsy, Since I am a little better at the written (typed) word. So here is my little corner of the world, offering my creations for everyone to see and enjoy. I really don't want to go back to law school. Besides, I'm not getting any younger and I think the corporate world frowns upon tattoos.

My studios are my super secret bat caves. Yes, I said studios. As in two! How lucky is that?!?! I have a home studio in my basement and a loft in downtown Columbus that I can work out of as well. I sometimes struggle with leaving my home, ok a lot of the time! Thanks agoraphobia... Not much for driving either, as I have POTS syndrome (AKA: a resting heart rate in the 130's + and random face plants. Throw in a broken thyroid and I just way too much fun. What can I say? When was the last time you met an artist that wasn't neurotic? Anyway, the second studio offers me a change of scenery and an extra place to find inspiration. Yay me! :)
