Melicia Phillips
Providence, RI. USA

I am a professional chef who has adapted her skills to metal work.
It came as a surprise that many of the same talents I apply to
cooking also apply to jewelry making-not only the manual skills, but
also appreciation for textures, colors, composition, fire and yes,

I found my happiness in the technique of Russian filigree, which I
love for it’s grace and fluidity. Not only do I love the zen of the
technique, but when I learned more about the different cultures that
historically produce filigree (Greek, Russian, Jewish), I realized
it was culturally significant for me as well as my heritage is a mix
of these groups.
