Pop-Out Jewelry

Melissa Borrell Design

Cutting Edge Jewelry

Melissa Borrell merges industrial techniques and organic designs to create remarkable metal jewelry that starts out flat and only reveals its final form when you pop out the shape. It’s fun, contemporary and, since it’s made by lasers, it’s literally cutting edge!

Melissa, who earned her master’s degree in jewelry design from RISD, hand-draws each design, which is then cut onto a sheet of metal but not detached from it --
that’s the fun part. Her Pop-Out pendants, necklaces and earrings are available in 18k gold-plated metal, stainless steel and red powder-coated steel (the ear hooks and pendant chains are made with sterling silver or 18k plated silver). Each can be worn singly or layered together to create your own custom look. When you layer the pieces, the interplay is mesmerizing -- like red that glows gold, or silver with a red shadow. It’s wearable art.

We found out about Melissa’s designs through one of our favorite blogs, Ree Drummond's The Pioneer Woman, and we knew it would make a great Grommet. It’s an ideal gift, too. Just imagine the surprise as your recipient discovers how to turn Melissa’s flat metal sheet into sculptural jewelry. So whether you want these for yourself or for someone else, get ready for pop-out fun. Twist, pop and enjoy!

Grommet Launch Conversation

    Hi Daily Grommet fans. I am super excited that Daily Grommet has selected my pop-out jewelry to be the Grommet of the day today. My pop-out jewelry came from my quest to create jewelry that has a hand drawn, handmade effect but can be produced on a larger scale with industrial processes to make them more affordable. I hope you will love the result as much as I do. I am traveling today but will do my best to answer any questions you have along with my assistant Colleen. I look forward to reading your comments.

    I love these. They remind me of some of Jennifer Meyer's older collections (airy gold pieces you would see on the likes of jennifer aniston and other hollywooders) -- but Melissa's art is even more delicate and beautiful and btw, WAY more affordable.

    Before placing the order, I wanted to know, how do I choose the color of the earrings or necklace pendant, like i see there are red, golden and silvers in here. When i checked the drop down box, I do not see an option with colors mentioned. Can you please help me to know if there is any choice with respect to colors or is that some colors are out of stock.

    Please clarify.

    @ Nancy Garneau: We're glad you're interested. Under the Price Range (far right of the video), you'll see an OPTIONS box with a down arrow . Click the arrow and select the necklace you want from the drop down menu.

    So beautiful! I am interested in the Circles Pendant in silver. It is not an option to the right, but it is pictured in the description. Is that option available?

    Thanks, Jean
