Melissa has been creating "wearable art" jewelry in her home studio for a decade, but is a newcomer to the world of metalsmithing. A single mom working as both HR and senior accountant for a bio-fuel development company, she somehow finds time to feed her creative spirit. She is learning mixed metals at the Denver School of Metal Arts. Using copper, silver and semi-precious stones, she creates rings, necklaces and arm candy.
