Melanie Lynn Penn Design was founded in 2007 by jeweler and designer Melanie Penn. Melanie has a BFA in metals, but by the time her thesis show came around she was on the hunt for something new. She ended up taking herself down a road of alternative materials and exploring new making processes. During this time she was introduced to 3D printing, CAD modeling programs and a whole world outside of metal. Today she does all of her design processing from sketching to final product utilizing Rhino3D, Matrix and Illustrator. She is aided by an amazing 3D printing company and equally fabulous laser cutting company. For over a decade now Melanie has been exploring felts, non precious metals, rubbers, plastics and everything in between as well as how they relate to jewelry and the human body. She also enjoys pushing the boundaries on what is considered "hand made"
All jewelry is proudly made in NYC, in a smoke free, pet free environment with no manufacturing [i.e the 3D printing/laser cutting] EVER taking place outside of the USA.
