Hi ~ I'm Melissa. I create jewelry using gemstones, crystals, pearls, and glass beads. I also enjoy working with metal, including chainmaille and hammered, embossed, and stamped metal designs.
Each piece is designed, handcrafted and photographed by me personally. I've been creating jewelry since 2004, offering my pieces through local craft fairs, private trunk shows, and online. I am primarily a self-taught jewelry artist, and have explored various techniques including stringing, seed-bead weaving, chainmaille, metal-stamping, wire-wrapping, and enameling.
I hope you enjoy wearing my jewelry as much as I enjoy making it. Each piece is made with lots of love ~ and lots of music. I play mostly rock-n-roll in my bead studio – Led Zep, The Doors, Hendrix, Janis, Stones, Bruce, and every now and then a wee bit o’ Irish music sneaks…
