I met Melania at the Sunday Market in Bali in 2020. She was there selling her woven wire jewelry and I immediately fell in love with her products…and then I fell in love with her! The woven bracelets were the first product that I loved – so simple, elegant and affordable. I bought several for gifts to take home for friends. But as I explored her range of beautiful necklaces, bags and earrings I kept discovering other items that have Melania’s elegant and clean design style; and the little Octopus a friend commissioned her to make is so adorable! Someday I hope to a have large fish or a lampshade so that I can enjoy Melania’s beautiful work beyond adornment for my body. Over the many conversations about her work, Melania have become friends and I am grateful for that as well!
