Melissa Borrell

Like her jewellery, Melissa Borrell moves around a lot. Having perfected her craft while moving from Houston to Boston to Paris to San Francisco to Rhode Island to New York, the designer is now known for pieces that incorporate motion and transformation. The abacus ring (pictured here), part of the "Is it a Ring?" series, has movable rungs which can be shifted depending on where you want to put your finger. For the best example of her fascination with pieces that change upon being handled, check out the mountain earrings in her "lines" collection.
