Now for a little bit about Mel!!!
Hi! My name is Melissa Kapuszcak and I am the crazy mind behind Shezarealgem Designs. I am a 30 year old mommy and wife, born and raised in New York. I make funky and eclectic jewelry for the modern, hip gal! About 4 years ago I began making jewelry and finally starting selling online a year ago.
I have always had an eye for design and love to adorn just about anything that I can get my hands on. Jewelry has become my main focus and I love to design funky, one of a kind pieces. When I quit working full time to begin a family I needed something to keep me busy and designing jewelry had always been a dream of mine so I figured why not. I cannot believe the success I have had and how many pieces and custom designs that I have sold in the past few years, it is so validating and exciting.
Even before I had children I have always been creative and have always tried to make things myself instead of buying them commercially. I am entirely self-taught so my methods are constantly evolving and improving. Though I work 5 days a week in an office and am a mommy of a 2 and 4 year old as well as a wife to a super cool and creative guy…I have no idea how I find time to breathe yet alone create but I manage somehow! With that my creativity has really worn off on my kids, my 4 year old daughter is extremely creative and loves to make jewelry and design. My 2 year old son is very musical and already makes up his own songs. We are a pretty creative and kooky family!
After starting a family I learned that perfection doesn’t always equal beauty. After giving birth and breastfeeding two babies in 3 years my body underwent some drastic changes and I began to see that even though I was far from what society deemed “perfect” that I was still beautiful. My designs are often eclectic and asymmetrical in nature and I love to find the beauty in these “imperfect” design ideas.
I love to create custom designs. I would be honored to work with you to create your dream piece just contact me!
