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 that would serve as a personal mindfulness tool. 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. I crafted the gemstones into interchangeable pendants, allowing the necklace to quickly adapt to my own positive intention practice.
After a while I decided to add a little extra good luck to the piece by creating a handstamped amulet, the Eye/I charm. Since the necklace had such a unique appearance, I felt it also needed a special name: the I AMulet.
Currently, there are over 20 different affirmation/stone pendant combinations and I’m still dreaming about new ones for the future.
In addition to I AMulets, I also like creating solo pendant necklaces and earrings with gemstones I consider to be extra special. 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.

Btw, in this picture of me, I’m wearing two pendants on my I AMulet — I Am Courageous and I Am Worthy.
