Melanie Golden Artisan Jewelry

Jewelry for the Minimalist Boho


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.

Gorgeous ring! The Rose Gold Heavy Weight Raw Silk Ring is so beautiful. I actually gasped when I saw it and how sparkly and shiny it is. I added it to my other two MG bands and a gemstone ring that I have. Very good quality and quick delivery.
