The Opulent Squid brings whimsical, lovely handmade jewelry to The Flea and it is always a big hit. Melissa describes her handmade, one-of-a kind pieces as "luxurious, blingy and a bit off kilter." We love them. Brand new and premiering at The Flea are her fortune cookie necklaces. These "words of wisdom" are often funny, sometimes inspiring and frequently lost in translation. Each necklace is made from an actual fortune culled from a huge collection she has amassed over the years--personally having eaten every cookie!
And Melissa really loves being at The Flea. She says:
I love The Flea! It is hands down the best venue I have done in Rhode Island as a vendor. Well curated, highly talented, high quality artisans and a fun and helpful staff make vending at The Flea an absolute pleasure. And of course there's the food trucks...
She'll also be debuting some statement necklaces featuring upcycled vintage hardware with each perfectly imperfect centerpiece well worn and with a history and character all its own! Stop by next Sunday, meet Melissa and see her wonderful work. Buy local!
