Handmade Artisan Jewelry by Melinda Zingg Zampetti

Hello and greetings from Schaffhausen Switzerland!

A little about me. I have been a creative individual my entire life. In my early years, I studied fine art and photography at Tyler School of Art and then later at Parsons School of Design where I obtained a BFA. In my later years I ventured into academia and studied art history and classicism, obtaining a MA. Although I did not study jewelry design officially in college, my education art included painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics and of course photography. All of these in one way or another have contributed to a broad experience of creativity and craftsmanship. My art history studies have also played a role as it introduced me to the art and culture of the past as far back as classical times. My inspiration is stimulated through observation, whether it be everyday objects, nature, art, or the products of other highly admired artisans. Often it is only the gemstone or little bead that can spark an idea. Travel, research, sub-cultures and ancient civilizations also play a role in my creative process. My interest in jewelry making has come only in past few years almost by accident. In the beginning it was a hobby, but later it became the main focus of my artistic expression.


There is nothing like handmade products in this era. Modern society has replaced the ancient traditions of the artisan with mass production of goods, especially fashion items. Handmade jewelry offers the alternative. Each piece is unique; handcrafted according to the artisan's skill and design. My jewelry caters to individuals with distinctive and unique tastes. They share the desire for individuality and quality. As a designer I am passionate about creating new and interesting pieces and I am motivated by the prospect of delighting my customers with wearable art. All visual art is appreciated through that act of viewing. Performance art and installation art allow for the experience as well as viewing. Wearable art is also appreciated through experienced of the individual wearing it. The visual is accompanied by feeling; the feeling of the object on the body.


You are invited to enjoy my work by visiting my online shop or contacting me directly. I also have a website: www.zinggimaging.com. I offer custom orders to cater your individual desire and needs. Keep in mind that the collection is constantly growing with new products. Therefore you can visit the shop too see the latest works.
