Wire Art Jewelry by Mel: I started making jewelry over 10 years ago, even longer if you count some jewelry I made with my father while I was still in grade school. I am basically self-taught with the experience of working with several great artists and teaching. My degrees are in art and psychology from a small liberal arts college. I moved to California to go to grad school, but never made it. I started creating jewelry as my main source of income there and began working for a company (whose name I cannot legally mention) making jewelry showcases for department stores. So, you may have seen my work without even knowing it, since they did not incorporate the artists names. I moved back near Chicago a few years ago and continue my passion for art, working from a studio in Wheaton.
No intervention needed, I’m fully aware that I’ve been on a jewelry kick for a while… Just let me get it all out of my system. Although, with finds like these earrings from june designs it might take a while.
bio: My name is Joelle, I’m a biology student and I’ve been seriously making jewelry for about one year. I like to use my brain to understand anything and everything, but I NEED to create and I love what is aesthetic and feminine, so I decided to launch into jewelry making. It’s the way I found to express myself.
Light and comfortable jewelry? Who would say no to that. Oh, plus it is so luxe yet clean. No easy feat to pull off.
