Nice to meet you. I am the face behind everything you see here and I fill every role in Melissa Pedersen Jewellery. Everything from designer, metalsmith and photographer to marketing, shipping and yes - even this website! In 2009 I received a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Jewellery & Metals, from the Alberta College of Art & Design. 

I met my amazing husband while at art school and we  live in Calgary, Alberta Canada with our three energetic sons. Every year they help me turn our backyard into a vegetable garden, which not only abundantly supplies us with fresh produce but also fresh inspiration for my designs each year. 

Creating for me is a very spiritual experience; I get lost in the process and I connect deeper with God. As I use my hands to work with the raw metal it is an expression of love.

Jewellery is so very personal, and it carries with it so much unique meaning. I find it thrilling to be able to capture a moment, a celebration, or an idea and transfer it into a wearable work of art. It is as if each piece I create has the potential to become a tiny treasure box of memories and dreams. 

 

Thank you for allowing me to create for you and joining me on this incredible adventure!
