Melissa Shippee

MGS Designs is simply the name I chose for my business which involves designing exciting and challenging beading projects for the intermediate to advanced bead weaving crafter.

Though that sounds complicated, what it comes down to is sewing lots of tiny beads together in interesting ways to create jewelry and other wearable pieces of art that are fun to make, easy to start and stop, and portable.

Melissa's Gallery

Melissa offers a range of workshops. Most workshops are project oriented and students will study the techniques necessary to complete the appointed design. Currently Zoom classes are also available. These focus on the creative process and the development of technical and design skills rather than a specific project. Below you will find the photos and description of all the workshops currently scheduled to be taught. For more details on dates, times and registration, please visit Melissa’s website.

Below is just a sample of some of her beadwork. Please visit Melissa's website for more beautiful jewelry and shopping at https://mgsdesigns.net/
