Handmade jewelry and charming prints
Creature's Virtue by Melanie Merenda started in 2016 as a collection of naturally and symbolically inspired jewelry and prints. Aesthetically motivated by exploration in texture and scale, the collection has evolved into something organic and curiously elegant. The prints, paintings, and postcards speak to fun and fantasy. Anthropomorphized characteristics unique to each animal subject make for work that captures the charm inherent in all creatures. Creature's Virtue is committed to supporting local businesses and sustainable practices. All jewelry is produced using ethically sourced gemstones and metals, local printers and suppliers are used whenever possible.
