Hello, My name is Melissa & welcome to Siren jewels®
A bit of history ~ I grew up in upstate NY, Albany, Saratoga area. There is a little town in the center called Burnt hills.
I've always been in love with jewelry. As a little girl, it was always a treat when my mother opened her soft, blue flannel lined jewelry box and let me try everything on. The smell. The beauty. The mystery. It was a magical place and everything had a story...
After earning my degree in graphic design, I felt unfulfilled. On whim, I decided to go explore the west and landed in San Francisco. I explored different mediums and found a metalworking class that sparked my interest and creativity. I instantly fell in love with the process of forming and fabricating metal. I also loved learning about the properties of gemstones. I have been creating jewelry and building my business ever since. I'm inspired by mythology, architecture, the splendor and beauty of nature with all its graceful form and energy.
I now live in PNW (Olympia WA) with my two amazing teenagers Xen and Sofia, Our two fur babes, Onyx + Akasha. My son helps me with social media, my daughter models my work from time to time. We work from our home studio.
I'm also a 1st degree Reiki initiate. I clear all my gemstones and imbue them with positive energy before I set them into the pieces I create. I hope you feel their love and beautiful energy too! Thanks for spending a little with me :)
