About

A jewelry line built from a love of making & a need for a creative outlet.

Hello there! My name is Melanie & I am the lady behind the curtain here at bare branch, handmade jewelry. I make jewelry because I love to and it is the one thing I can do that allows me to be my mom's full time caregiver & still help support my family. I feel so blessed to have this opportunity, so thank you for your time & thank you for supporting handmade!

Here's a little about how my little home studio in the deep south came to be..

In 2004 our lives were turned upside down when my mom had a fall in the home that left her paralyzed from the neck down. That day I quit my restaurant job & decided to devote my time to caring for her & helping the family. Little did I know at the time, I had just made a decision that would alter the course of my life forever.
Luckily, my then boyfriend, now husband is the most supportive, caring, thoughtful individual & has been by my side through it all!

As time progressed I felt the need to contribute something more. To make something I could call my own. I also knew it would have to be an at home venture so my hours could be flexible as most of my time is spent at my parents' house.

I always enjoyed arts & creating. No matter what other crafts I tried, I always found my way back to jewelry making. First beading & friendship bracelets, then small earrings, then I looked into metal work, silversmiths, gemstones & from that my dream was born!

I now sell simple, completely handmade, lightweight, easy to wear jewelry that I myself would love to wear & hope you do too!!

I LOVE to learn!! I feel like each piece I craft teaches me more about not only the metal I'm manipulating, but also jewelry as a whole. I adore it!!

I also enjoy knitting, crochet, needlework, photography, music, reading & baking.

Thank you so much for spending some time here with me at bare branch!! I hope you have found something you'd like to call your own, but if you haven't please don't hesitate to send me a message & maybe I can create something custom for you.

Hello & Welcome to bare branch jewelry! Thank you for visiting!!

Here I sell my beautifully clean, mondern, light weight, easy to wear everyday, completely handcrafted jewelry. Every piece is handcrafted by me in my little home studio in the South Eastern U.S.

My designs are mostly argentium silver/ sterling silver (and soon some 14/20 goldfill). They feature freshwater pearls, precious & semiprecious stones. I use recycled, upcycled & cruelty free materials as much as possible while keeping my prices friendly & affordable.

I like to use recycled silver, recycled/recyclable packaging & fair trade stones.

*Please Note* All packages will be mailed to your ETSY address. Please make sure it is up to date. Contact me if you'd like it sent elsewhere.*

**Many of my designs are made to order, specifically for you! It could take 3-5 days to create your order (3-5 days from order date to ship date). I will contact you soon after purchase to let you know when I plan to ship yours!
