Melissa started out as a merchandising design buff, and then,… a couple of years ago, she was bitten the bug that really makes her tick. After receiving a degree in design, she worked for retailers such as Neiman Marcus and Bed, Bath and Beyond, buying for and even managing stores.
Now putting her full attention intoThe Gold Bug, with designs as eclectic as her personality, and a philosophy that you can make high quality, unique jewelry that people don’t have to get a second mortgage to afford, she has embraced a steampunk style creating pieces with skulls, Victorian era notions, bugs, and all types of gadgets.
The Gold Bugstampings are made from vintage molds and are manufactured right here in the U.S.A! The pieces are solid brass, and are either oxidized brass finish or antiqued silver plated.
