I love the outdoors. I often find inspiration on my travels, especially in nature. And I have always wanted to see the Northern Lights.
So I booked a trip to Iceland!
I’m back and happy to say that it was an amazing week of hiking, beautiful snowy mountain tops, striking black beaches, and colorful, dancing Northern Lights. I’m so inspired by this trip and can’t wait to get back into the studio.
Here are some photos from my trip, including a couple of new designs!
For photos of my travels, studio/in-progress shots, and some sweet treats, please follow me on Instagram at @mlewjewelry.

This week is an exciting week for me – Melissa Lew has a fresh new look! I’m so excited to share my new branding and felt that it was a great way to start the new year.
The new logo is bright and cheerful and is a reminder to live life in full bloom each and every day. I can’t wait to move forward with this refreshed brand as I feel that it better reflects what drives my brand – to inspire and motivate others. To bring others joy. To raise others up.
It’s more than just jewelry. It’s a celebration of beauty, strength, and life’s amazing moments. Good things do happen.
