Malia Peoples started their business in 2018
My name is Malia Peoples. I am a native Hawaiian raised in the Pacific Northwest.
Melted is a line of uplifting, colorful and classic porcelain jewelry that features ahead-of-the-trend, gender-neutral shapes suitable for everyday wear.

I mix powdered glass colorants into porcelain, cut out shapes, and form a porcelain pizza by layering different pieces together. The pizza is smashed and then cut into necklaces, earrings, and more. This is a modern take on the Japanese art of Nerikomi.
