Announcement   In 2003, I took a lampworking class, the art of making glass beads using a surface mix torch. Using my own glass creations, I create unique, modern jewelry using precious stones, mixed metals, found objects and vintage components. I'm always inspired by color, graphic elements in nature and patterns in everyday objects.

About

Bio

Melissa started her artistic career very young; at four year's old she drew horses on the living room wall with a red crayon. In 2001, she graduated from Maryville University with a BFA in Graphic Design.

Always experimenting in different mediums, Melissa decided on a whim to take a lampworking class, the art melting of glass using a surface-mix torch, and was immediately hooked. After torching at Glasshopper Studio for almost three years, she established a home studio in 2007. Today, she focuses on offering unique jewelry that incorporates vintage details with a modern twist. Many of her jewelry pieces include lampwork glass, metal work, founds objects and vintage components. She is constantly inspired by the graphic elements in nature and patterns in everyday objects.
