I'm Melissa Meman of Melismatic Art Jewelry...a little bit about me and my art!
Creating eclectic art jewelry is a passion for me and my goal as an artist is to share some of that passion to others through my designs.
All of my items are designed/fabricated solely by me utilizing a wide array of materials and techniques. I love working with metal...sterling, copper, bronze, and brass...sometimes all at once! I incorporate many other elements...gemstones, artisan beads (lampwork, polymer clay, ceramic), Czech and Austrian glass, torch-fired enamels, mixed-media elements and more. Most findings, such as earwires, bails, clasps, are also handcrafted by me or other artisans...not many mass produced components here!
My inspirations come from lots of places...nature, textiles, photography, antiquity, music, and loads of color!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you will stay and browse a while. You are sure to find something to love!
