About MELJewelryLLC

On Etsy since 2015

Crafted By Hand | Sustainable | Loved Forever

MEL Jewelry represents three generations, myself Marta Vergara, my daughter Elymar and the reason I reinvented myself, my granddaughter Lucia. In 2014 at the age of 62, I had to relocate to the United States from Venezuela and start a new life in a different country in a completely different language. It is then when I decided to reinvent myself.

Making jewelry has given me strength in difficult times and has brought balance and happiness to my life. I hope to translate these feelings of empowerment and happiness in all of my pieces and to all who wear my jewelry.

Becoming part of a new culture while keeping alive the warmth of my South American roots have been the powering force behind my creations. We design and create jewelry pieces that embody memories from our tropical nature and the warmth of our culture. We look to keep our culture alive in our collections while incorporating the culture of the country that today embraces us. We combine different techniques, metals and semiprecious stones to produce collections that are casual but chic for your everyday wear.

MEL Jewelry represents powerful women who don't settle, who overcome obstacles and who take risks. Women who are the designers of their own destiny. Be you.. Be casual.. Be chic everyday with MEL Jewelry
