Meet the Designer
Jewelry with Meaning, Worn with Intention
Hello! My name is Melissa and I’m a family practice doctor living in Minneapolis with my husband, daughter, two guinea pigs, and a super sassy goldfish.
I began designing jewelry during a college metalsmithing class and continued doing so even after graduation. In 2015 I imagined a necklace with interchangeable pendants that could address limiting beliefs and foster self-agency. Starting with only three gemstones (rose quartz, sugilite, and agate) I wrote positive affirmations to complement the energy of each: I am loved, I am worthy, and I am enough.
After a while I decided to add a little extra good luck to the piece by creating the handstamped Eye/I amulet charm. Once the necklace developed its unique appearance, I felt it needed a special name: the I AMulet®.
There are currently over 25 different gemstone talisman pendants, each with a corresponding affirmation and empowerment script.
In all of my work, I prefer a simple and classic style, always using natural stones and ethically sourced materials for their beauty and energy.
