Melissa Shipley

As a fifth generation jeweler Melissa is continuing a family tradition which began in Baden Baden, Germany nearly 200 years ago. Introduced early in life to the art of jewelry making and design, she has worked with various metalsmithing techniques and a variety of materials. "Over the last twenty five years, I established Melissa Shipley Designs, where my focus has been exclusively on design and material quality, searching for the unusual and creating the original. This is where my love for intense detail and extraordinary pearls blossomed.” Rosemaling, is the ancient decorative folk painting of Norway and began in in the 1700’s. There are several styles of Rosemaling, however, the foundation for Melissa’s inspiration comes from just three styles. First there is Rogaland, where scroll work, leaves and flowers are the focal point, as well as cross hatching, dots, and teardrops – the designs being very symmetrical. Next is Os, where designs include geometric shapes such as cubes and squares, and architectural motifs found on churches or fine houses- both symmetrical and asymmetrical. Finally, Vest Agder, is a style that is symmetrical and somewhat geometric.
