how it all began

cropped-head-shot.jpg Hi! I'm Melissa, designer, maker + doer of all things malisay designs!

In 2009 I was inspired by a pendant I saw at the runner's expo for my first half marathon in Phoenix. It was hand stamped and I wanted it! I was planning to buy it for myself as a reward after the race. But instead, I started researching the art of hand stamped jewelry, bought some supplies and made myself the pendant! I started making gifts for friends and then wondered what would happen if I turned my new craft in to an actual, I did. :)

I have a degree in interior design and love working with my hands. I have so many interests and am constantly starting new projects. I am not meant to do "just one thing"...the possibilities are endless!
I personally stamp, polish and package every order. There is a little bit of love in every order I ship.

Now that I have added permanent jewelry to the line up...I am so excited to offer in person shopping + permanent jewelry experiences at my new studio salon suite - located in Tempe on the SW corner of McClintock & Warner.

You will still find me at pop up markets around town and can shop online 24/7

Thanks so much for stopping by! I look forward to creating an heirloom quality piece just for you! ~Melissa
