Label Crush: LeMel Designs

More than jewelry itself, Cinched loves to pick the minds behind the creations we adorn ourselves with. Over a weekend Aspen wedding, Cinched caught the eye of an amazing turquoise piece sported by one of the bridesmaids.  The beautiful adorned lady is Texan native Melanie Pritchett, mastermind behind Lemel Designs sporting her own creation. A geek for adornments, Cinched quickly interrogated the talented designer on her coveted pieces. 
Available through Lemel Designs or Etsy Shop, her creations vary in style. "My jewelry is a little bit of everything: blissful, bright, and delicate. I use semi precious stones and all Gold Fill," shares Melanie.  

" I like to create everyday pieces that have a little something extra.  I hand wire wrap each piece and make sure it is of the upmost quality.  I have a full and varied range of jewelry that marries quality and design."- Lemel designer
Behind her style: "Layering Jewelry – I love to wear at least three gold necklaces at once – layering thin gold necklaces that are all different lengths. I also love to layer bracelets – I literally just stack my wrist full.  "


" Every day I make something it becomes my new fav.  Right now I will have to go with the Cinched.  I have always been obsessed w/ Evil Eyes.  I love this one b/c it has Champagne Diamonds & Blue Sapphires," shares the designer when asked what her favorite piece from her collection is.
"I love all the champagne diamond charms.  They are all from India and mix oxidized sterling silver and 18k gold.  I’m all about wearing a staple necklace every day and then mixing it up by adding more layers. What’s so great about theses is that you can mix it with Gold or Silver.   "



Lusting after these gorgeous adornments, Cinched anxiously adds these pieces on her Christmas list.
