Jewelry designer Melissa Cohen found her calling after taking metalsmithing classes with her crafty friends in Atlanta, GA. Over the next few years, she made the move to Brooklyn, NY and is now making a living off of her twee-yet-tough trinkets. How inspiring!

Metal Sugar jewelry ranges from metal-cast edibles (like the Twizzler cuff pictured above) to petite animals to sassy stamped nameplates, sprinkled with a healthy dose of teensy diamonds. They mix with everything from modern statement pieces to your grandma’s vintage locket.

Her Sugar collection is available for purchase online (and at the BUST Magazine Holiday Craftacular and Food Fair!), but I’m really looking forward to her edgy Metal collection, set to launch in 2013.

Be sure to check out Metal Sugar at the BUST Holiday Craftacular on Saturday, December 1 and Sunday, December 2 at 82 Mercer St. in SoHo. The Craftacular will be open from 11 A.M. to 7 P.M. both days.
