I am absolutely so grateful for the interviews that I've been asked to do over the years. Some of them are available to read online, while others have been archived or are no longer available.
"Meet Nicole Melton of Knot & Splice of Kansas City"
featured on Voyage Chicago, August 1, 2018
A couple of quotes from this interview:
Each jewelry piece I make is a one of a kind artwork to wear and enjoy. The inspiration and excitement for me are in collecting stones, connecting with mine owners and lapidaries (the people who cut/polish the stones which are an artwork of its own), as well as the process of creating the work. When someone loves it enough to purchase it, that really helps me to continue to do this work that I love.
My job as an artist is already unique. I don’t enjoy just selling, I want to make the work that I put out, it’s love-driven.
