From the article:
“Local metalsmith Melissa Manley, who earned her Master of Fine Arts in metal design from East Carolina University in 2006, stumbled into the art of enameled jewelry serendipitously.
While completing her degree, Manley spent weeks meticulously soldering two intricately winding copper cups. Out of concern for heavy-metal exposure, Manley sought alternative means to preserve the usefulness of her work. An instructor suggested she enamel the pieces, and sparked a newfound passion.”
