- Handmade, one-of-a-kind stained-glass sun catcher by Melinda Wolff.
Melinda is a St. Paul artist experienced in many fields of art and has become fascinated and inspired by working extensively in jewelry, stained glass, and watercolor paintings. She has a bachelor’s degree in Studio Art from the College of St. Benedict and just recently embarked on a new life adventure by becoming a full time artist. Keep an eye out for her creations at local art and craft shows throughout the year and make sure to follow her journey on her website and facebook. She is also a lover of camping trips, nature hikes, craft beers, and spending time with her wonderful husband, Brian, owner of Wolff Woodworks.
Melinda Wolff’s upcycled jewelry is created with reclaimed wood scraps from her husband’s wood shop. The jewelry is brought to life with resin coating that magnifies and accentuates a spectrum of colors, which can range from deep blacks and browns, to warm reds and purples, to rich whites and yellows. Melinda Wolff jewelry also includes necklaces, rings, and keychains made from found butterfly and moth wings and hand picked real 4-leaf clovers. Distinctive and rare, each piece makes a statement that emphasizes nature’s beauty.
Melinda’s watercolor paintings capture her perception of nature by focusing on color, lines, texture, whimsical elements, and symbols associated from her dreams. Each painting is finished with black ink to add vivacity and expression that enhances the images within each painting.
