The creative force behind The Opulent Squid is Melissa Murray, designing posh and peculiar handmade statement jewelry and wearable art using new and vintage glass beads, wire, unique charms and findings, wood, glue and vintage ephemera. Biology, zoology, mythology, religious relics and bright shiny objects are just some of the things that inspire Melissa. She brings these interests to her jewelry with passion--and coffee--fueling her ambition! Melissa says, "I put my heart, soul and energy into every piece of jewelry I create!" And it shows. Look for her unpredictable pieces at The Flea on June 2 and July 21!
