All art, jewellery and ceramic products on this website are independently designed and handmade
by Melly Frank in Hobart, Tasmania.
My work is primarily inspired by meditation and natures law of change – the only constant in life.
With this in mind, my goal is to create high quality, interesting contemporary work that the owner can
interact with in some way.
Instead of using many precious stones, I create vessels that house materials that can be changed by the
wearer to suit colour taste changes and mood. My hope is to inspire creativity in others.
I love the idea of jewellery existing off the body in its own right and being enjoyed just as much when
not being worn.
I initially developed a range of sculptures to display my jewellery called The Sleeping Stones which has now
evolved into a range of vases, cups, dishes and sculptures.
My greeting cards are all original artworks made by hand by initially stamping with my own hand carved stamps
and then completed by hand drawing. I am happy to customize your cards if you prefer certain features.
E.g curly hair, beard, glasses. Just let me know when you order and I will do my best to
accommodate your request.
My work is currently stocked at SPACEBAR GALLERY, an awesome little space within the Salamanca Arts Centre
in Hobart, Tasmania.
Myself and fellow artist and friend Lorena Cabezas run the gallery.
Together we support over 30 primarily local artists and makers, carefully curating our beautiful gallery space with
only the highest quality hand made products.
All jewellery purchases and goods over $50 will be sent by express post within Australia. I will go halves with you
for postage meaning you only pay $6. You will be emailed a tracking number when your item has been dispatched.
I charge a flat rate of $20.00 for postage outside of Australia.
