"Craft is the dovetailing of discipline and imagination, dedication and inspiration. When those spiral around each other, and serious attention is given over to that alchemy, then one’s craft can be realized. ~ Rosanne Cash
My particular craft uses glass and film, paper and silk, gold leaf and sterling.
They are rarely difficult to wrangle into pleasing compositions. I am lucky to have picked such an amazing medium. More likely, it picked me. For that I am thankful.

I love glass bubble jewelry and this necklace is very unique and of such great quality! I have worn it and many people aren't familiar with glass bubble jewelry and they loved it!!!!
The person I bought it for loved it.
I’ve been wanting a pair of Melissa’s earrings for a long time, having seen them up close and personal at craft shows. Not only is her artistry amazing but, also, her customer service is beyond outstanding!! I can’t thank her enough for that!!! Can’t wait to wear these gorgeous earrings!!😊

About The Artist
Melissa Schmidt’s glass studio is in her back yard in Saint Louis, Missouri. Raised in Hawaii and San Francisco she has always felt at home in the artistic world.
She is prolific in her glass jewelry. Recently her work has included sculptures as memorials. Love of working small and past life interior design principles of scale, texture, balance and color inform her compositions. She is known for her whimsical feminine aesthetic and soft palette. Her incorporation of unusual materials such as 35 mm slide film, papers and natural materials within the glass bubbles are just the tip of her vast mixed medium artillery. Her pieces are built to last and as strong as they are beautiful.
Melissa's work has been included in the Racine Art Museum’s 50 years of studio glass exhibition, SOFA Chicago and is being represented by Rebecca Myers Collection in Baltimore, Maryland, Gravers Lane Gallery in Philadelphia, PA. , Bubble Street Gallery in Sausalito and Montague Glass Gallery in San Francisco.
