Hi. My name is Melody.
Born and raised in the Southern US of A, I now find myself in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa (you should see my view!).
To the tune of music in my home studio, I make whimsical handcrafted sterling silver creations. All of my work is handcrafted and formed using traditional metalsmith techniques.
I have always marched to the beat of my own drum which is reflected in the unique and peculiar nature of my work. Graduating with a BA in Art with a concentration in black and white photography, all of my designs emerge from the images I recall from the everyday. Without fail, these images always end up in my sketchbook which is later translated into the metal beauties that you will find in my portfolio. I get much pleasure out of the whole creative process from idea to sketch to completion.
I hope you get as much enjoyment wearing my pieces as I had fun making them.
