Gemstones tell a story

Because I work largely with one of a kind stones, the majority of my work is one of a kind. I really love this idea as the individuals who buy my work are all unique… why shouldn’t the jewelry they own reflect this?”—Nicole Jo Melton, goldsmith and owner of Knot & Splice

Bespoke Testimonials

Wow! What an amazing ring you created for this special moment in our lives. She loves it. It showed up a month earlier than expected which made my day!! I could hardly wait to ask her once the ring showed up. Ended up popping the question on Sunday evening while camping during a beautiful sunset in the mountains of northern Washington state. ...We appreciate the love and care that you put into your craft—you are very talented! It will be in our hearts and on her finger forever."

The [earrings] arrived, Nicole, and they are breathtaking. My husband gave them to me this morning...Thank you so much for accepting my request to make something so special to me. A gift from someone whom I love so much. We are both incredibly impressed with your craftsmanship. You’re so talented! Your jewelry is heirloom quality. Your customer service is top notch. And your delivery is one of a kind with such exquisite packaging also as detailed as your work.

Working with Nicole was easy and straight to the point. She was very patient and helped me figure out what our best option was for an engagement ring. She worked hard and delivered my ring on time. She knows her material and is passionate about the stones she uses. My fiancé loved that her ring was one of a kind and unique.

I took the plunge and selected a gorgeous gem to begin the bespoke process with Nicole Melton of Knot & Splice... Nicole made every step of the process satisfying so that I was sure to have exactly what I wanted. I could not be more pleased at my very own original art piece. P.S. I have another piece purchased from her shop—an opal that is gorgeous and equally pleasing. I can whole heartily recommend working with Nicole, be it a bespoke piece or a purchased from her inventory… this art does not disappoint.

Initially, I approached Nicole by email to see if she would customize her beautiful Botanic Pendant. Fortunately, she was open to creating the specific pendant I had in mind. Since the very beginning, she has been prompt in replying to my questions. She also took the time to order and then select the perfectly matched sapphire colored stone that I requested. Her passion for designing jewelry is evident in the skill in which she hand engraved my pendant with additional hand applied millgrain detail. I'm in love with my customized Botanic pendant!  If you are considering a customized piece of jewelry with Nicole, I would wholeheartedly say go for it! Nicole has the skill and love for her craft to deliver exactly what you have in mind!
