Close to the store, Melissa’s studio is a hub of creativity and inspiration. She believes that a treasured piece of jewellery has relevance and meaning for a lifetime and all her work has an artisan’s touch. Largely self taught, she gained an education in technique with short intensive courses in jewellery making at the Barnsdall Art Centre under the tutelage of fine contemporary American jewellers’ such as Valerie Mitchell..
