List of products by designer Melissa Joy Manning

After majoring in art history at the University of California, San Diego and getting her BA in jewelry design and sculpture at San Francisco State University, Melissa studied traditional silversmithing at the Instituto de Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and European design principles at the University of Barcelona before launching her namesake line in 1997 with less than $1,000. 

Hyperbole this is not. In fact, the designer made her first piece of jewelry at age four. "My idea of play was making things: friendship bracelets, jewelry," explains the Northern California native. "I never set out to be a jewelry designer; rather, I wanted to live an authentic life in pursuit of my craft."

Since its inception, the Melissa Joy Manning collection has been known for its beautifully designed, impeccably crafted, and socially—and environmentally—responsible ethos.
