"My customer is the person who cares about the lining in her purse or her coat. There person who is going to appreciate the special, hidden two stones on the back or whatever it is-that's the person who is going to love my pieces."

New York-based designer Melissa Kaye creates elegant pieces designed for layering or subtle yet impactful solo wear inspired by the most iconic moments in jewelry history. Inspired both by the soft organic lines of nature, and a bold geometric abstraction that reflects the work of artists such as Piet Mondrian, Kaye’s work brings a contemporary verve to classic silhouettes.
