Melissa Cohen is the jewelry designer behind the brand Metal Sugar. The name Metal Sugar came to her in a dream. She is originally from Atlanta, GA and lived in Brooklyn, NY for 10 years before settling down in Tybee Island, GA 3 years ago.
As a metalsmith for over 14 years, Melissa Cohen has developed a wide range of pieces in her own line. On one end of the spectrum, you’ll find her clever, sweet and often funny pieces, and on the other end, you’ll find her delicate, gemstone driven, fine jewelry designs. She is always trying out new techniques and works with unique, ethical gemstones from around the world.
This March, Melissa opened a Showroom & Studio in the Starland District in Savannah, GA where she sells her work, but also meets with clients to discuss custom designs, ranging from heirloom recreations to wedding/engagement rings.
