About MelodyArmstrong

Sales 17
On Etsy since 2008

I design and create jewellery to bring joy and excitement to those who appreciate it!

My objective has always been to transfer my emotions, creative passion and risk taking into my jewellery in an expressive way to arrive at exciting jewellery forms that elicit awe and inspiration, and personalize them in order to give my work a distinctive character.
My jewellery designs testify to the textural dynamic and technical volition behind my work, seemingly to have evolved from organic origins taking on an industrial influence. The ever changing interplay of colors and textures creates dynamic contrasts – evoking a vividness of exquisite dimensions – which is rich, alluring and of the utmost elegance.

Additional policies and FAQs
Caring for:

ANODIZED TITANIUM
Titanium is a reactive metal that has the unique property of developing colored surface films when charged with small voltages of electricity through an electrolyte bath.
Anodized Titanium develops an oxide film of consistent, specific and uniform thickness. Once formed this film is inert and tends to remain unchanged.
The oxide film is incredibly thin, at any given voltage the film will grow to a specific thickness and stop. The different voltages are what determine the color.

Anodized Titanium will change color from finger prints and oils. You can remove these oils with soap and water. The Anodized Titanium will return to its original vibrancy.

SILVER CARE
Shiny Sterling Silver can be cleaned with a jewellery cleaning cloth.
Sterling Silver with a Patina can be washed in mild soap and water, and dried with a soft cloth. It can also be cleaned with a gentle jewellery cleaning cloth just rubbing the high spots and edges.

PATINA
Patina is a process used on Sterling Silver to create a sulfide layer. Using Potassium Sulfide dissolved in hot water, and dipping the jewellery piece, a full spectrum of colors develop from gold to purples and blues to a matt black, depending on how long it is in the solution.
These colored oxide layers are used to produce contrast and to enhance surface textures. Then the piece is sanded or burnished, leaving the colors in the low spots and exposing the shiny silver on the high points. This process produces rich and alluring jewellery pieces.

PEARLS

The pearls most of us wear today are cultured pearls, their existence initiated by humans who insert a bead or other object into an oyster or clam. The clam coats the foreigner with nacre, the patina that gives pearls their unique appearance.

The depth of the nacre coating depends on the type of creature involved, the water it lives in, and how long the intruder is left in place before it is removed. As nacre thickness increases, so does the quality and durability of the pearl.

Caring for Your Pearls

Even cultured pearls with thicker coatings are more fragile than most other gemstones, so you must handle them carefully to keep them in the best condition.

•Your pearls will stay cleaner if you put them on after you've applied your makeup and perfume.
•Be sure to take off your pearl rings before you apply hand and body creams.
•Wipe your pearls with a soft, lint-free cloth as soon as you take them off. The cloth can be dampened with water or it can be dry. If damp, allow the pearls to air dry before putting them away.
•Dirty pearls can be cleaned with a mild soap and water solution (try Ivory flakes).
•Never clean your pearls with solutions that contain ammonia or harsh detergents.
•Don't put pearl jewelry in an ultrasonic cleaner.
•Don't use abrasive cleaners or rub pearls with abrasive cloth. Both can wear away the nacre coating, leaving you with a plain looking bead.

Storing Pearls

Don't store your pearls with other jewelry, because they can be scratched easily when metal or gemstones rub against them. Find a special slot in your jewelry box for the pearls, or keep them in a soft bag made from chamois or another non-abrasive material.




CUSTOM ORDERS:

Custom orders are Final Sales.
Payment is required to begin a project and is non-refundable.

The buyer will be given a time line for completion upon agreement of the project.

Please understand that custom orders are new creations, and will never be exactly like something before. Furthermore, my interpretation of your ideas may be different than you expect. I will do my very best to create a piece we are both happy with, and with our combined vision. As noted, custom orders are a final sale and I will do my best to fulfill my end of the bargain. But upon a disagreement, or cancellation of finished pieces, 50% of your payment will be non-refundable.

Also note from time to time the price of a custom piece may be higher than quoted, but you will be asked for approval for a higher price, if more work is agreed to be undertaken.
