Melissa Cable is a mixed media jewelry artist, instructor and author who thrives on developing new designs and techniques with traditional and non-traditional materials, from metal, leather, and plastics to wood, clay and found objects. She is fascinated by the translation of techniques between materials and shares this love with students in her workshops online and around the world.
Melissa enjoys documenting her experiments on her blog, Create Recklessly. She is the author of Spotlight on Wire (2011), Metal Jewelry in Bloom (2013) and Beautiful Leather Jewelry (2014) and her work has been featured in Art Jewelry, BeadStyle, Stringing Magazine, Wirework Magazine, Step-by-Step Wire and Showcase 500 Art Necklaces. In addition to creating her own products under her Create Recklessly brand, Melissa serves as a consulting design for Faux Bone and is on the design team for Patrik Kusek's Woodland Chic.
She resides in the Greater Seattle area, where she calls Fusion Beads her teaching home. When she is not chasing after her young daughter and son, she might be found writing, running or rambling.
