Custom Jewelry Designs have been a huge part of my business... Designing, dreaming, collaborating to come up with a Unique, One of a Kind piece of Jewelry for you. The Custom Design process can be done through a series of messages, sketches and photos. It's amazing what technology offers to allow the Custom Designing process to flow with ease. Each piece that I custom make is filled with the love and stories of the collaborators. It takes a beautiful One of a Kind creation to a whole new level. A Forever Heirloom with a story to tell.
I love being a part of your story, especially the surprises!
It would be an honor to custom make a ring for you!
Blessings,
Melissa

Creating Jewelry is my passion a constant journey of joyful exploration, I love making people happy and being a part of special memories made!

For me making art was always my favorite thing to do even from childhood.... It wasn't until Art School in college that i took my first Metalsmithing class and as soon as I touched the metal i knew that was what I wanted to do. Studying Metalsmithing at East Carolina University, Montana State University, Italy. I had various apprenticeships with a famous Italian Goldsmith Lisa Sotilis (she owns DeChirico's Sculpture Collection), Montana blacksmiths, swordsmiths and lapidary artists. Ultimately I received a BFA in Metal Design. After that began my own business and have been happily making jewelry for the last 18 years. I love what I do and i hope to make something for you!
For the past 5 years i have been Designing and Consulting for Made By Survivors, a great non-profit giving women a new means to make a living after being rescued from a life of Human Trafficking. Check them out MadebySurvivors.com
I have had the honor of being published and recognized internationally:
Vogue Magazine, Brides Magazine, House of Coco Magazine, Folk Magazine
Published in RELEVANT NATION book-40 artists/activists under 40 changing the world
*Featured Jewelry Designer in Wilmington Fashion Week 2014,2015
*Celebrities wearing my Designs: Dakota Fanning, Marlon Wayans, Chris Tucker, Gina Gershon
*Jewelry Designer for 3 Feature Films

It's been a long time coming this ETSY shop, I've been a bit more conventional selling my designs at shows, galleries, boutiques, my own website... and thanks to some persistant friends now on ETSY!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Absolutely. Most every item that you see here is custom made to order. Whatever stone whatever gold whatever design you can imagine I can create. Please contact me with your ideas. Production time is 6 to 8 weeks.

Sizing details

Please leave your ring size in the notes at checkout. You can go to any local jewelry store to get your accurate ring size. Sizing charts online are not accurate.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All jewelry that you receive will be in the highest quality velvet gray box ready for your perfect proposal or gift for your special moment.

Care instructions

As soon as you receive your custom jewelry it is best to add it to your valuables policy with your insurance. General maintenance clean with liquid organic jewelry cleaner and a soft toothbrush and once a year take it by your local jeweler to have your stone settings checked to make sure everything is great.

Can you use my heirloom stones

Yes. Absolutely I love recycling heirloom treasures. Please send me a picture of the stones that you want to use or the gold that you want to recycle as well as the design that you would like them to be created into for a custom quote.

What is your Warranty?

Every custom designed Melissa Tyson designs jewelry is warranty for one year after purchase for all design defects or craftsmanship issues. If you have another jeweler size your ring after you receive it it will void the warranty. My goal is to create heirloom treasures to last a lifetime and be passed on to generations. Please make note you must have your jewelry appraised and added to your own valuables policy with your homeowners insurance company.

Custom Orders Final Sale

I absolutely love to create your one-of-a-kind custom orders. Keep in mind they are very time-consuming and a labor of love. Therefore I do not take any returns on custom made orders. All sales are final.
