Meaningful Jewelry Designs

Melissa believes that jewelry is an expression of one's identity and a way to hold personal messages and memories close. Her collections emphasize recurring themes of time, memory, and symbolism. She draws inspiration from the enduring concept of talismans, creating pieces that provide protection, empowerment and identity.

The Intersection of Jewelry and Time

Melissa's fascination with watchmaking led her to explore the craftsmanship, precision work, and engineering behind watch movements. This connection to time and horology inspired her to design jewelry pieces featuring elements such as sundials, hourglasses, and moon phases.

Meticulous Handcrafted Process

Each piece of jewelry created by Melissa is meticulously handcrafted in small batches. She combines various metalsmithing techniques, including hand fabrication, hand engraving, wax carving, and lost wax casting. Melissa takes pride in preserving traditional methods like hand engraving and wax carving, which bring a unique touch to her creations. 

Responsible Material Sourcing

Melissa prioritizes responsible material sourcing and continually educates herself on the origins of supplies. She is a Fairmined Licensed Brand, ensuring that the gold used in her jewelry comes from traceable sources that respect both people and the environment and gives back to the mining communities.

She actively supports greater diversity in the industry, and empowerment of BIPOC jewelry professionals through contributions to relevant organizations and volunteer work.
