About

Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry and Gifts

Welcome to Lighthouse treasures studio, my name is Melissa and I am an artist at heart. I have always had a love for art, spending most of my time drawing or painting. While in school I experimented with sculpture, pottery, small metals and stained glass. The love of working with my hands lead me to Massachusetts College of art where I concentrated on glassblowing and jewelry making. Taking raw materials and manipulating them with my hands to create pieces of art became an obsession and I loves to learn new techniques to develop my craft.

After graduating, I found a job working with a glassblower in Westport, MA. While working alongside him and another glass artist I learned the way of production and business. I began creating my own line of glass works and also dabbled in jewelry making. Soon I had a collection and started selling my work at local craft shows. My etsy store was also created and now I am focused on developing my own business.

My inspiration is drawn from the beach and natural elements. I could spend hours sitting ocean side watching the waves and the clouds. Walking along the shoreline, I love to collect little treasures washed up by the ocean. I use my beach collections in my designs and hope capture a moment in time. My jewelry contains sea glass and shells but my walks along the oceans edge also inspired my new line of beach frames. The collection of shells, rocks, sand and sea glass are intricately placed in various designs and set in place forever in a textural picture.

My love of creating beautiful work from raw materials using only my hands and tools make my work one of a kind, no two pieces are ever the same. I hand pick each, shell, bead, gemstone and glass piece. I strive to use high quality materials including sterling silver chains and handcrafted components. These pieces are made with utmost care and quality for everyday wear, gift giving to treasure for years to come.

I also enjoy the challenge of custom orders. If you don't find exactly what you are looking for in my shop or have an idea for an extra special gift, send me a message with your custom preference and I will do my very best to accommodate your order.
