Rainbow Moonstone PendantMelissa took the vision from my mind's eye and made it come to life. I'm so pleased by this piece that I can't WAIT to have her make earrings for me! The turn-around was quite quick, considering she had to go find the perfect stone for me. It is truly a one-of-a-kind piece. She took my criteria and turned it into art. Thank you so much, Melissa!
Three Diamonds Pendant This is a wonderful piece!!! It looks like a vintage piece of jewelry, but also updated and fresh! I love the oxidized finish, the unusually cut onyx, the piercing work, the scale of the all works together beautifully!!! Melissa is a very friendly and attentive artist/seller, too, which makes the overall buying experience terrific! I highly recommend her work!!!


Golden_AngelI first noticed Melissa and her work through a jewelry forum. I just love angels, and she was making these utterly fabulously divine looking wire angel pendants! I could just feel the lovely energy of them. I looked through her website and saw this simply AMAZING piece...called "Golden Angel" made of Agate and Gold filled wire. I just HAD to have it. But it was sold. So I contacted her and asked her if she would make one for me, and she did! And it turned out even better than the one before! I have to say that whenever someone sees me wearing that pendant, they go WOW!. I love browsing through her site because its a treat to the eyes, and really, for the effort she puts into making each piece, her prices are really low. I love her style. And I have recommended her to many people...I highly recommend her to you also!
Melissa Muir, talented jewelry designer and instructor, has been teaching metals and wire classes at Grand River Beads for over a year. Her classes have been very well received, she connects well with beginning as well as more advanced students and her projects are challenging, artsy and fun! I am pleased to have an artist of her caliber on my design team.

Heart In The Stone PendantIt was very nice dealing with Melissa. She was very prompt at getting the pendant mailed out and graciously took care of the sale over the phone. The piece was gorgeous and my daughter loved it.
Michelle's HeartAs one of Melissa's greatest jewlery fans, I can say with absolute certainty that her work is outstanding. I own about a dozen of her pieces and have even purchased them for friends as gifts. I have special ordered as many pieces as I have purchased straight from her website, and each piece is always well received with gasps of utter pleasure. She always understands exactly what I am looking for and puts an incredible amount of time and devotion into handcrafting whatever I want. I always get numerous compliments on the pieces I have purchased, and everyone always wants to know where I got them. I am sure I will be purchasing jewlery from her for years to come!

Just to thank you for the excellent class on Saturday. We ALL enjoyed it thoroughly! Taking your jewelry classes is like escaping into a different world. It is very fun, relaxing and rewarding! I wore my earrings (that I made in class) all day yesterday and was so excited that I actually made them! We all appreciated your thorough explanations and your patience in teaching us.


I have taken a number of classes from lots of teachers over the years. I found Melissa's instruction to be thorough and detailed. She is well prepared for her classes and her knowledge of her craft is extensive. She's a lot of fun as a teacher, yet she maintains a tight schedule so that students will get the most out of their time with her. She's willing to answer even the silliest questions with grace and tact. I cannot recommend her classes highly enough for anyone at any level. As a beginner to working with metal, I found her a wonderful instructor who very apparently has a passion for teaching. I'm sure even the most advanced student would learn a great deal from her.
