Frost Finery: A sustainable jewelry studio
Our jewelry has power. It can make us feel more confident, glamorous and connected – it is imbued with meaning. So it's important to me that the pieces we love wearing every day have an eco-conscious origin. I work exclusively with recycled silver and source stones as responsibly as possible. Every piece passes through my hands before it finds its new home.
Frost Finery jewelry studio in Pittsburgh is the creation of owner and designer Melissa Frost. Melissa crafts every piece using a combination of hi-tech and handmade methods. This mix of metal laser cutting, 3d design and traditional metal-smithing practices embraces the present with a respect for old and new techniques.
Every design starts off as a sketch. Then they’re prototyped by hand or modeled in 3d software to make sure sizing, fitting and durability are spot-on. I work with EH Schwab, a family operated company just outside of Pittsburgh to help me laser all my designs. Then the fabrication process of soldering, forming, forging, setting stones, sanding and polishing follows.
We are proud to adorn fellow design and fashion-lovers. Our fashion choices are more than a look – they express our ideas, they way we live, what’s happening, our emotions, and our personality. The Frost Finery arsenal is here and we’re excited to see how you blend it into your unique style of self-expression. Most of all, we hope that every piece reminds you of something thing, some place, some one or some feeling to be thankful for.
