About Me

Hello! I’m Lyssa, and as cliché as it sounds, I really love making jewelry.

I primarily work in bronze and silver. I have two collections: one is based on quotes from literature and pop culture, and the other is my Armor line. I try to create jewelry that serves as more than just an adornment. Each quote and each shield is intended to be a sort of talisman, reminding the wearer of something important. Wearing the armor tells you to have courage and take risks. The book quotes have many more stories, covering friendship, love, and even just finding humor in the world.

  1. Hello Lyssa 🙂 I am a friend of your mom (Tita Florina), actually my mom and your mom are friends 🙂 and I had the opportunity to see your stuff when I visited your mom. You are really so gifted, I really admire your work. The details in each earring and ring is just so beautiful. I love artsy craftsy stuff… anything from scrapbooking, multi media art, dough art ,bead art and so much more. Sometimes, whenever I get so stressed with work and other stuff I just go online and check out artsy craftsy sites and I become dreamy again 😉 I want to share with you one the sites i visit , I ‘m not sure if you know Christy Tomlinson but she is a mixed media artist doing artsy craftsy stuff and she does workshops too. Here is her site: http://www.christytomlinson.typepad.com . By the way Lyssa, maybe you can make iPhone ( not that i have one, Im a blackberry girl actually, hehe) dust plugs just like these cute kitty iPhone dust plugs using your clay or even your silver: http://www.ioffer.com/i/cute-cat-dust-cover-f-iphone-4-4s-3-5mm-ear-jack-phone-518754883. iPhone accessories are such a hit hear in the Philippines.

    • Thank you so much! I’m glad you like my work. Artsy things are such a great stress reliever! Oo, dust plugs! That would be so fun! I could do little foods and fun designs! Thank you for the idea! I’m an android girl, so I’d never thought about iPhone accessories.

  3. Hello Melisa, my name is Bret and I am writing an article about the Mass Effect series and what it is that has made it so special to fans and I saw your blog post about how your fiance proposed in a Mass Effect themed way and would love to include this in my article. I know that you are incredibly busy but would you have time for an interview? If you are available for an interview I am willing to conduct it in whatever way is best for you, whether it is by email, phone call, what ever is easiest for you. If you would like to contact me, you can email me at bmq12@my.fsu.edu

    Thank you very much for your time and have a fantastic week!
