Melissa Cohen is the jewelry designer behind the brand Metal Sugar. She started this venture on a whim in the summer of 2006, signing up for metalsmithing classes as an escape from her work in Corporate America. After the very first class, it was already apparent this wasn't just a fleeting interest-this was a full blown obsession. That passion for jewelry design and creation has only grown stronger through the past decade and in that time, Melissa has developed a wide range of pieces; at one end of the spectrum you'll find her cute, delicate, and often funny work, and at the other end of the spectrum you'll find custom commissions of fine jewelry, mainly engagement and wedding rings. A perfectionist at heart, Melissa strives to create work that speaks for itself as a way of growing her business.
