Meet The Maker

Hi there!

My name is Melody and I design and craft all of the jewelry here by hand

I have delved into various art forms my entire life and I enjoy the creative process. I love to hike and find myself stopping frequently to enjoy the scenery and pick up interesting colored rocks. At one point during 2021, I started to become curious about the art of turning rocks from the earth into what you see in jewelry (cabochons). I joined my local lapidary club and learned how to create these stones. This then peaked my interest into metalsmithing. I took an introduction to metalsmithing class and started building out my home studio, and I've been hooked ever since! I find metalsmithing to be a good way to de-stress and maintain focus (no better way to stay focused than with an open flame!)

I am inspired by colors found in nature, flowers, and rocks, and the dynamic landscape around me - the Sky Islands in southern Arizona - a place where you can play in snow atop the mountain surrounded by pine trees and go back down to the desert and cacti below. I aspire to capture that feeling in the jewelry that I make. Sky Island Jewelry is about colorful pieces that make a statement, whether simple or bold. 

I handmake all my pieces using 925 sterling silver, 14K gold fill, or jeweler's brass.

I love making pieces, knowing that even if I am making the same design, no two pieces will be exactly alike. Being handmade, each piece is truly one of a kind.

It is my sincere hope that you wear your jewelry and be colorful out there in the world!
