My name is Iris Rogers Melamed, and I am a jewellery artist. I am thrilled to be participating in Chatazon Boutique. Until 2020, my jewellery business was strictly wholesale, but as we all know, almost everything has changed. I had always planned to grow my online retail presence, and the opportunity to be a part of this innovative fundraiser seemed like a perfect place to start. The focus of my work is exploring the versatility and uniqueness of silver and other jewellery metals using traditional methods of metalsmithing. About 15 years ago, I took a break from my career as an epidemiologist, and started my journey in making metal jewellery. My collections are about texture and shape in clean, simple design. While my metal of choice is silver, I also incorporate other metals such as copper, brass, bronze, and gold-filled, especially in these days of rising silver prices! All of my work is carried out in my home studio in Toronto, Ontario. In addition to creating jewellery, I also teach classes in jewellery making techniques. It is very empowering for someone to learn a new skill, and I find it extremely gratifying to encourage my students on their own journeys.
