Trade: Vintage tooling jewelress
Locale: Mendocino County, CA
"My jewelry is inspired by the magic of the natural world, with an indie fairytale aesthetic."
The vintage charm of Melinda Ryan’s handcrafted jewelry comes from an authentic place. Although every piece is a new, original design, they’re all formed using vintage tooling from the jewelry days of old. From broad oak leaf earrings to quirky squirrel pendants, every imaginative design starts with a quiet moment and an open sketchbook full of notes and drawings of these treasured vintage finds. After some handy work, gold electroplating and a union with gold fill findings, they come to life. Every creation, a fairytale treasure. Every detail is thoughtfully considered, right down to the petite clasps and findings, so as not to interfere with the delicate piece. It’s all part of the charm.< less
