From the soul of nature flows the spirit of jewelry.
Allyson Mellone is my namesake jewelry brand created in 2011. After a few years of experimentation I developed a line of jewelry that reflects an elegance I call "Modern Day Grace." My design aesthetic mixes the intricacy and beauty of nature with the eloquence, femininity, and casualness of the 1960s. I intend my jewelry to be a renewable source of inspiration for women every day of their lives.
I started my jewelry making journey in the early 2000s when my sister Deborah made for me a pair of wire-wrapped earrings. I quickly fell in love with their handmade style whose essence celebrated the freshness of nature and life. I've worn those earrings ever since then like a sisterly badge-of-honor.
I strive to create pieces through free and simple metalsmithing processes. This results in each piece being elegantly designed and finished with the imprint of handmade quality. Each piece I make has subtle variations and imperfections, details akin to physical birthmarks of the creative process itself.
My jewelry is an adornment that is more than skin deep. For me, it transmits beauty, fosters identity, and enhances inner being.

Additional policies and FAQs
Please feel free to convo me at allyson.mellone [!at] yahoo.com with any product questions or with special requests.
*Gold-Filled Wire, Chain, Components*
Gold-filled metal is made with an interior base metal that is then bonded with a solid karated gold exterior. The exterior that you see is a solid 14K multi-layered surface that is 1/20 of the total weight of the entire metal portion. Gold-filled is a much better quality material than the single-layered gold plated material and is wonderfully affordable to gold.
*Semi Precious Stones*
The color and marbling in stones I select are natural characteristics and are in no way considered a flaw. I have selected these stones to be part of the design of each piece to emphasize a more naturalistic aesthetic.
•Wearing Your Jewelry:
To help preserve the surface of your jewelry, I recommend that you put on your jewelry after hairspray, perfume, lotions, etc. are applied to your hair or skin.
•Cleaning Your Jewelry:
Jewelry with pearls and/or leather is not water-resistant. Your pieces made with sterling silver and brass will acquire a slightly dark patina over time due to the natural aging of the metals. To restore the natural luster, clean your pieces with a soft, felt polishing cloth. I do not recommend cleaning your jewelry with cleaning fluids.
•Storing Your Jewelry:
When storing your jewelry, I recommend that you store your pieces dry, placed in the purple pouch provided and placed in a jewelry box, or store your jewelry in a seal-able plastic bag.
