Melody Armstrong

profile-pic-2016Melody Armstrong is an internationally recognized contemporary jewellery artist based in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree majoring in Jewellery and Metals from the Alberta College of Art and Design, graduating with Distinction in 1999. Working with traditional and non-traditional metals, enamels and stones Armstrong鈥檚 Industrial-Organic aesthetic combines abstraction with a truth to materials that reflects both her attention to detail and quality of workmanship. Armstrong delights with her use of contrasts in surface treatments to highlight the elements she has imposed throughout the metal. Vitreous Enamel, anodized metals, or gemstones creates bursts of colour and reflection while the patina oxidizes much of the metallic surfaces, providing a sense of distress, corrosion and age.

Armstrong鈥檚 awards include the ACAD Alumni Honour Award in 2016, and Independent Artists Grants from the Saskatchewan Arts Board in 2010, 2013 and 2019.
