Why call my shop MIDESIGN? Social Butterfly was taken and my initials are MI and I love to design and create with beads and textiles. Social Butterfly Jewellery (Jewelry for those in America) is the brand name for my jewellery range here in Australia. My jewellery is also known as Social Butterfly Beadwork and Melissa Ingram Design.

Currently my work is occasionally available online through this Etsy store.
