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.
