Handmade nature inspired sterling silver jewellery

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    Hi! I’m Melissa Pedersen and welcome to my sterling silver garden! Inspired by the natural world around me, I create one of a kind rings, necklaces and earrings in solid sterling silver using traditional metalsmith techniques.

My biggest source of inspiration comes from my own backyard garden. I love to capture seeds, sprouts, flowers, and leaves and transform them into solid silver. It is important to me to treasure the good and hold onto the beautiful. I love hearing when my jewellery was given as a special gift of encouragement or as a celebration gift to mark a milestone or anniversary. It is an honour to create something that cherishes the big, happy moments in your life.

Most of my jewellery is ready to ship in 1 - 3 days. If you choose one of my custom made to order listings please allow for 3 - 4 weeks for me to make something just for you. Each of my jewellery pieces will arrive carefully packaged, pretty enough to give as a gift.

Meet the artist - Melissa Pedersen

In 2009 I graduated from the Alberta College of Art & Design, I left with not only a fine arts degree (with Jewellery as my major!) but also with a strong sense of direction for my art and business. I love making jewellery, loosing track of time in my studio getting all caught up in the process and little details. In my sleep I dream about future designs, many times I wake up and need to grab my sketch book before I forget! Oh, and I am a tool junkie, my studio is well equipped to a variety of metal working styles and techniques.

Argentium sterling silver is my favorite material to work with, it has a slightly higher fine silver content as traditional sterling silver but it has great fusibility properties and stays cleaner as I work. It is also milled from 100% recycled silver!

As a stay at home mom (my boys are 8, 7 and 5) my studio is my outlet, my time to unwind get creative. I love being able to be home for my boys whenever they need, especially with my youngest who is in kindergarten this year.

I fill every role of the business myself from the original design and making the jewellery to photographing, marketing and webs design to shipping.

Thank you for checking out my shop and artistic adventures!
