Melissa T
Senior Designer
Founding Artist


Melissa is one of our most experienced designers. She demonstrates a unique creativity and patience with clients, which provides the foundation for collaborating in creating one-of-a-kind pieces. As a designer, she feels it’s the customer’s stories and laughs that really matter. After all, it’s the client’s own life narrative that inspires all those distinct elements of design, thereby making a finished piece truly their own. The inventiveness and ownership she upholds in this family business is the basis for each of her designs. Drawing inspiration from individual clients and the stories that they share, she works together with them to create something truly special that we can all be proud of.

Having worked in the custom jewelry industry since 2004, Melissa is one of our most experienced designers. She demonstrates a unique creativity and patience with clients, which provides the foundation for collaborating in creating one-of-a-kind pieces. After several years of working alongside her father to learn the craft of fine jewelry, she decided to commit fully to the vision of the family business. At Green Lake, Melissa channels her artistic passion, attention to detail, and delight in exceeding client expectations to produce exquisite custom jewelry.

Melissa loves working with people from all walks of life. For her, it’s important that a client’s stories and laughs are shared; it's where their life’s narrative inspires all the distinct elements of design that makes a finished piece truly their own. The inventiveness and ownership she upholds in this family business is the basis for each of her designs. Drawing inspiration from individual clients and the stories they share, she works together with them to create something truly special that we can all be proud of.

While custom jewelry has become one her most cherished creative outlets, she still enjoys recharging her artistic sensibilities now and then. Melissa loves to travel whenever she can. She’s a big believer that while inspiration can be found anywhere, it’s especially reinvigorating to experience new people and places (she's made recent trips to China, Mexico, and the American Southwest). Melissa is currently plotting the next big journey—and is always open to suggestions!
