Intro
Melissa is an Australian-born artist jeweller who lives and works in Seattle, Washington in the USA. She holds a Masters of Fine Art in jewellery and metalsmithing from Monash University and Bachelor of Art with honours in interior architecture from Curtin University. Her works are in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia (Canberra), the Cheongju City Collection (South Korea) and the Arts Centre Melbourne (Australia), and her pieces have featured in the publications Jewel Book, Art Jewellery Today 3 and Lark Books’ 500 Silver Jewelry Designs.

Statement

My works exploit connection. By documenting select points of confluence, I explore the interconnectedness of all humanity, which includes the points at which, to our collective detriment, our connections fail.
 
While the works are the result of research, the objects that I take as my materials also influence the forms I create. I produce patterns for them, which include encoded messages within. Together the interleaved narratives, those embedded in the materials and introduced through the patterns, convey my message.
