From the Founder

" The beauty of jewelry lies in its story. It has the incredible ability to evoke emotions, capture memories, and symbolize the most profound moments in our lives. Each piece holds a story waiting to be told. Your story.
You become part of that narrative, intertwining your own history with the heritage of the piece. It's a remarkable feeling, knowing that each time you put on your favorite necklace or slip on a pair of earrings, you are carrying forward a legacy and connecting with something greater than yourself.
At Melanie Golden Jewelry, we believe in the emotional connection that jewelry fosters. It has the uncanny ability to make us feel confident, empowered, and deeply connected. It serves as a reminder of our strength, our dreams, and the journey we are on.

We believe in the power of small moments of joy, and strive to bring that into every piece we create.

Let your imagination run wild as you explore our jewelry. Let our designs speak to your heart, celebrate your uniqueness, and become a cherished part of your golden story.

Let's make every moment golden, together. "

Get an inside look at how your jewelry is made

How we do it



We handmake every single piece of jewelry, just for you, with fire and love. From raw sheet metals, wires, and gorgeous gemstones.

Our  high-quality materials are sourced from suppliers who’ve been certified for following ethical practices from the Responsible Jewelry Council.



Then we put it all together. From hand-stamping designs, engraving initials, attaching charms, closing jump rings, welding bails or ear posts, and making it just right.

With a final polish and quality check, designs are finished, and your story begins.



Our commitment to quality extends beyond the jewelry itself. We package your order in our beautiful gift-ready signature branded jewelry boxes.

Our packaging is eco-friendly and FSC®-certified.

The FSC® mark guarantees that all materials come from an FSC® forest, where no more wood is cut down than the forest can reproduce. This means better protection of the animal- and plant life, and all foresters have proper training, safety equipment and a decent wage.

Treasure the golden moments in your life with something beautiful.

At Melanie Golden Artisan Jewelry® we believe that the world is made up of golden moments and memories. We offer unique minimalist boho chic jewelry that is designed to tell stories and capture your most meaningful moments. Our items are handcrafted with care, hypoallergenic, waterproof, and made using sustainable materials - so you know you're getting quality without sacrificing style (or the environment). The jewelry is meticulously crafted in limited quantities or as unique, one-of-a-kind pieces.

Melanie Golden Artisan Jewelry is designed and created in Odessa Texas, USA by owner Melanie Golden and a small apprentice team. We specialize in the art of traditional metalsmithing, where we craft each piece with unwavering attention to detail. This ensures that our jewelry not only withstands the test of time but becomes an enduring symbol of beauty and quality. At Melanie Golden Artisan Jewelry, we pride ourselves on creating heirloom quality pieces that evoke emotion tell Your Golden Story.

At Melanie Golden Artisan Jewelry, we incorporate time-honored metalsmithing techniques into each and every piece. Each design is hand-forged and shaped. Every hammered line, each polished surface, and every intricately twisted strand of metal is crafted by our skilled artisans, with you in mind. We begin with raw materials like gold and silver, crafting them into meaningful, wearable works of art through processes such as soldering, filing, texturing, and polishing. Each piece holds a Golden Story, intertwining our story with yours.

Melanie Golden Artisan Jewelry is deeply committed to sustainability. Our utmost priority is to ensure that each and every piece is sourced and crafted with the highest ethical standards, while minimizing our environmental impact. We diligently utilize recycled metals whenever feasible, striving to create jewelry that is not only stunning but also sustainable. Our gemstones are sourced from local miners and cutters across the USA, while our metals and materials are obtained from American-made refiners and suppliers. We are committed to minimizing our plastic usage, with the ultimate goal of achieving a plastic-free operation in the near future.

Founded in 2009 as Mood Jewelry Designs, Melanie Golden Artisan Jewelry has grown from its humble origins in a small closet filled with boxes of beads to a kitchen counter and eventually expanded into a spacious studio. The creation of Melanie Golden Artisan Jewelry was fueled by a profound passion for continuous learning, triumphing over challenges, and, of course, an undeniable affection for all things sparkly!

Our commitment to creating beautiful jewelry has remained unwavering for over a decade, and we are thrilled to continue this journey with you. Let Melanie Golden Artisan Jewelry help you capture the golden moments in your life - creating unique, meaningful pieces of jewelry that will be treasured for generations.

Love the Earth. Wear the Art. Celebrate Your Golden Story. That is what drives us at Melanie Golden Artisan Jewelry. With our beautiful and timeless designs, we strive to make each Golden moment count. - Melanie Golden Jewelry - Sticker
