As a designer for film and television for almost 30 years, Melinda Lawton has always seen the world in color, texture, form and movement. So, it was a natural shift for her to design jewelry – a true passion for her. She says she’s a Southern girl at heart, with ancestors from Charleston. After reconnecting with her first love, Alan, she relocated to North Carolina from Los Angeles. Now, she creates her jewelry in her flagship store/studio, Sweet Magnolia Gallery, in Hendersonville.
Her jewelry is described as “timeless” with strong roots in antique style. You’ll discover her unique color combinations and the finest of gems in all of her work. The Sweet Magnolia Gallery has 9 curios full of jewelry designed and created by Melinda available for purchase.
“Your jewelry is what I wear when I want to feel my bravest,” one collector wrote. Melinda sees her work as “Empowering women…one at a time.”
Wednesday-Saturday, 11am-5pm, and by appointment.
