If I define the work of Melissa Pedersen, would use two words: professionalism and beauty
I'm really impressed with her work.
Melissa Pedersen is a Canadian jewellery artist from Calgary Alberta and the owner, designer and maker of Lively Leaf Design, she makes handmade earrings and pendants using rubber inner tube.
She has a strong direction for her art and business and has a real passion for her work.
Melissa Pedersen designs and creates each piece of her jewellery by hand, she finds true inspiration in the garden and especially after spring when she fills her sketchbooks with designs of beautiful elements of nature flourish.
This influence about nature and garden comes from her mother and is really inspirational, the act of observing nature can only come from a supreme sensitivity and total harmony with the world.
These words are from Melissa: -"It is in the garden that I find my inspiration, especially in the spring. The sprout, budding leaf, and seed pod are symbols I use deliberately in my practice. These elements of new life represent for me perseverance, potential and hope. I realize life has many winter seasons, but it is also full of cycles. When a spring season enters my life I choose to treasure it, and use it as a reminder for the future. By capturing different elements of nature and using them in my handmade jewellery I am able to preserve what may only be here for a fleeting moment."
She works with a variety of materials, like silver, gold, gemstones and pearls but her new adventure is Lively Leaf Designs, where she use bicycle tire inner tube and make unique statement jewellery using this material, that Melissa defines as durable, tactile, lighweight and safe to work with. Each piece is hand cut and hand assembled using stainless steel wire and chain to became gorgeous pieces of art.
Melissa has graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD) in 2009. She has won numerous awards. Her artwork has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. She started her handmade jewellery bussiness and work at her home studio in Canada, where she lives with her family.

ElunaJewelry is a sterling silver, hoop earrings and gemstone jewelry at etsy, here is an interview with April Willians, owner and designer
Who are you? Hi my name is April. I am the owner of Eluna Jewelry Designs, a jewelry designer, and a gemstone addict. :)
What made you start creating jewelry? I have always loved stones. When I was young my parents took me to the NC Mountains where I got to experience gem mining. Since that time I have been hooked on the natural beauty of stones and have wanted to share that beauty. So when I was first introduced to beading, my path turned to creating jewelry as a way to share that natural beauty.
What are you best known for? My best sellers online are my Reverse Hoop Earrings. I have been selling these on Etsy since 2009. I began offering them in only in Sterling Silver. Since that time, I have expanded to include copper, gold fill, and 9 colors of niobium for creating my Reverse Hoops.
What’s the one problem you are best at solving for your clients? Comfort. I believe that jewelry should be fashionable and comfortable. I always keep comfort in mind when I am designing my jewelry. From the weight of my earrings, to creating necklace and bracelets that are completely metal free, creating jewelry that is comfortable should be the first goal in my designs.
What are you currently working on? I have a new line of earrings this year featuring Malaysian Jade. These are wonderful beaded earrings in both copper and silver. I am also offering rings for the first time this year as well. Finally I am working on creating new one of a kind gemstone necklaces and cuff bracelets which I totally love!

This week I would like to present this lovely etsy shop ObscureGems, from Upstate New York, lovely and unique handmade items made by mother and daughter, beautiful mix of crochet and jewerly items impeccably designed and fully handcrafted in their home.
This is their Story:
We’re Nancy and Frances, the mother/daughter team behind ObscureGems. Our shop features handmade jewelry and crochet items with unique characteristics.
We opened 2 years ago on Etsy with a desire to reach more people outside of local artisan shows.
I crochet and Frances designs jewelry, so combining our talents into a cohesive brand is a fun project. The items in our shop change depending on what has inspired us recently.
We joke that we are really run by cats. Edgar is in charge of quality control, Tugger oversees all crocheting, and Demitri keeps us on task. Cat people are always welcome in our shop!
New items are always being added in addition to our jewelry, cat toys, and other products.
One of our new product lines coming soon is dog toys!
We’d love to have you take a look through our shop and find something that will
help you express who you are.
You can find the full ObscureGems collection here:
