Get to Know

Hello! My name is Melanie. Thanks for your interest in my studio!

From a very young age, I have always enjoyed creating art in some form - from drawing and painting, to glued-together Barbie clothes and knitting. I am self-taught in creating my original designs. I hold an Associate's Degree in Technical Illustration from Pierce College in Woodland Hills, California.

My designs contain an array of media including new and vintage jewelry, found objects, leather and fabric. I delight in creating recycled/upcycled designs and draw inspiration for my pieces from all aspects of life.
