Announcement   Welcome to my collection of Good Looking Objects handmade in Mendocino County, California.

Simple + feminine + striking.

Good Looking Objects is a cozy nook to find magic & nature inspired jewelry that thoroughly delights you.

I want to be a part of that satisfying moment after you've gotten yourself dolled up, and then ritualistically put on your jewelry. I love that moment.

How It's Made:
Vintage: Many of my designs feature vintage components; newly manufactured and U.S. made, they’re created using vintage tooling from the jewelry days of old. These carefully chosen little relics arrive to me as raw brass and are then manipulated by me by drilling, forming and filing. I then send them off to be coated in gold electroplate. Arriving back in my arms, they are ready to be combined with the gold fill components which so beautifully complete them.

Cast: From my sketches, these pieces are translated into 3D models or hand carved out of wax by myself, then cast in sterling and bronze here in California.

Quality:
Quality and effective design is very important to me. Materials I use include gold fill, sterling silver, stainless steel, stones and hardwood, as well as high quality, professional platings of gold and silver. The findings I use (jump rings, ear wires and clasps) are always petite, so as not to distract from the design (have you ever received a necklace with an unnecessarily ginormous jump ring? It's the little details.)

About me:
Hello by the way! Welcome to my nook. My name is Melinda Ryan, the magic behind Good Looking Objects.

Why jewelry: I've always loved design of all kinds — fashion, interior, graphic and jewelry. In 2012 I began channeling my love of design into Good Looking Objects, creating jewelry that delights romantic, imaginative ladies with a love for magic, nature, animals, mystery and all-around loveliness.

More about me: Things that are important to me are: integrity. humor. beauty. magic. kindness. animals friends. creativity. freedom. friends and family. good communication. grace. nature. adventures. camping. music. design. conversations with children. conversations with adults. burying my face into my cat's soft furry tummy. spur-of-the-moment happenings. honesty. random acts of kindness. connecting with like minded people. Expressing myself! You know that recent "describe yourself in 3 fictional characters" thing that has been circulating? I went with: Anne Shirley, Jessica Day, and Larry David. Pippi and Eloise should probably be thrown in there as well.

Please send me a message with any questions you may have, and I will get back to you promptly.

Thanks so much for visiting, I hope you love it all! ★

---------- STYLE ----------
simple + feminine + striking.

While I love color, my designs are often quite neutral, making them very easy to wear with various apparel, as well as your various moods.

Quality and effective design is very important to me. Materials I use include gold fill, sterling silver, stainless steel, stones and hardwood, as well as high quality, professional platings of gold and silver. The findings I use (jump rings, ear wires and clasps) are always petite, so as not to distract from the design (have you ever received a necklace with an unnecessarily ginormous jump ring? It's the little details.)

---------- HOW IT'S MADE ----------

All embellishments are designed and assembled by yours truly, with utmost care and enjoyment.
Many of my designs feature vintage components; these are newly manufactured and U.S. made but are created using vintage tooling from the jewelry days of old. Isn't that neat? These carefully chosen little relics arrive to me as raw brass and are then manipulated by me by drilling, forming and filing. I then send them off to be coated in gold electroplate. Arriving back in my arms, they are ready to be combined with the gold fill components which so beautifully complete them.

I hope my jewelry delights you. Thank you for stopping by! Also, visit www.goodlookingobjects.com to explore more and to sign up for my simple and delightful newsletters! <3
