Melinda was born and raised in Florissant, Missouri. Her love for sparkly things started at a very young age when her parents owned their small business, Countryside Gardens Nursery, and she would play in the large rock beds that were used for landscaping and look for the most sparkly rocks. What increased in interest turned into a growing hobby, and as a young adult Melinda took classes through the community college and through Craft Alliance in University City to learn glass blowing and fusing, wax carving and casting, metal smithing and basic bench skills. After getting her business degree at Northeast Missouri State University, and being in outside sales and marketing positions in various industries for a decade, Melinda thought it would be fun to actually try jewelry as a career, and there was no place she wanted to work more than Roemer Originals. “What inspires me most about jewelry is to be able to create that one-of-a-kind-piece that really reflects what a person wants out of that piece. Roemer’s has always specialized in doing just that.” Over the years, and since purchasing the store in 2005, Melinda has had to adjust the business model with the changing economy and gold markets and the buying habits of the customers. “We’ve added lot’s of Sterling Silver into the mix. We work in sterling in our custom pieces now, which we didn’t used to do. We also have some wonderful new designer lines that we carry in sterling that compliment our own brand, in the fact that they are quite unique and exceptionally well made.” “Keeping up with the technology demands of our consumers is our next biggest challenge in today's marketplace. We want to make it as simple as possible for everyone to interact with us but still offer the exceptional service that we have always been known for.” Melinda wants to thank you for considering Roemer Originals as your personal jeweler and wants you to know that we will always do everything possible to merit your trust.
