Melt’m Handmade Jewelry: Minimalism with Meaning

Hello and welcome to my shop
Modern Art and Traditional Motifs
Melt’m artisan jewelry pieces are handcrafted with traditional goldsmith and silversmith techniques. Meltem learned these skills through private lessons with multi-generational masters of the art in Istanbul. Sterling silver and 14K gold are skillfully manipulated to transform paper sketch designs into realized art pieces.
Growing up on the Northern and Southern coasts of Anatolia, Meltem has a unique connection to traditional Turkish jewelry motifs. She brings these traditions to life with subtle design influences and rare craftsmanship methods. Lost wax and stone setting techniques are skillfully recreated in the Melt’m shop along with traditional saw-piercing, the process of cutting designs out of metal.
No other designer combines styles and traditions like Melt’m with artisan jewelry made by hand in California.
Stunning Designs and Positive Energy
It is believed that every piece of metal and precious stone records the good spirit and energy that it is handled with. From the initial dream sketches to final polishing, Meltem infuses her workspace and creative projects with positive energy and joy. Get lost in the beauty of the minimalistic, modern designs and feel the love that is put into each one.Melt’m Jewelry brings corners of the word together through inspiring metal work and deeply personal designs. Meltem grew up in Istanbul, Turkey and got her start taking lessons with Turkish jewelry designers. Surrounded by the beautiful architecture and history of the ancient city, she was fueled with inspiration and challenged to recreate the beauty of natural forms.
After ten years of creating handmade jewelry in Istanbul, Meltem moved to California to expand her practice. The Melt’m flagship showroom in Redlands is an extension of her workspace with stunning views of snowy mountains and lush orange groves in the distance. The jewelry designer brings corners of the world together, creating jewelry that is inspired by Turkey’s ancient cities, the teachings and philosophies of the far east, and the natural beauty of Southern California.
Meltem is always working to improve her practice by taking on ambitious projects and courageous designs in pursuit of deeper emotion and meaning. Modern, minimalistic styles may appear simple and fragile, but they’re designed with purpose and confidently crafted by hand. Every product is one-of-a-kind with a unique Melt’m design. High-quality metals pair with precious gems that are hand-picked by Meltem herself at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul.
Finding her footing in California, the artist clings tightly to her Turkish heritage with stunning, modern designs that are often infused with Eastern traditions.

I SHIP WORLD WIDE!

When traveling across a border, packages occasionally get stuck at customs. I do NOT have any control over this, it's in the hands of your country's customs officials. Please understand you are taking a risk in buying internationally that your package may be delayed up to 7 weeks. This is not common, but it happens occasionally. I have NO control over your country's customs officials. Some countries will charge duty for international packages and others will not, and all at different rates! Most packages go through without any charges, it is somewhat random, but please be advised that I have no control over how your country charges duty. These are NOT extra shipping charges. You are responsible for knowing your country’s customs and duty policies.

Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy.

Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest toimprove my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
