Hi, I'm Chris Messina, the designer and creator behind Make A Statement Jewelry. My journey started as I longed to take my creative side to a new level and balance a long technical career. Taking classes and then mentoring under a 30 year juried craftsman, I was inspired to take a chance on building my own business doing something I love.
My jewelry collections take inspiration from the natural world. The designs are influenced by my New England roots and multitude of international travels. All of the pieces are individually crafted ensuring that the striking characteristics of each piece highlight the uniqueness and personality of the individual who wears it. From my studio, I bring my gorgeous creations to life as one-of-a-kind, handcrafted pieces. I use traditional metalsmithing techniques to create artisan jewelry that is eye-catching, unique and Makes a Statement. Each piece is carefully designed, hand-cut and composed with bold accents from stunning gemstones, textured finishes and mixed metals. A balance of updated classic lines and trendy interpretations of nature’s beauty make my pieces suitable for an elegant night out or a playful accent to a casual outfit.
I create jewelry that help showcase the uniqueness of the wearer and makes a truly personal statement.
