"with a passion for being creative and enjoying all things girly"
In 2004, Malinda Iskiyan transformed a passion into a profession when word got around about the distinctive jewelry she had been making for herself and her friends. Malinda followed her mantra of "be true to yourself" and created True Designs, LLC. With a large and loyal client base, True Designs, LLC has proven to be not only a creative outlet for Malinda, but a successful business and profitable avenue for a wide array of clients, galleries and boutiques nationwide.
Her designs revel in texture with precious metals cast, carved and burnished to sculptural effect. She often repurposes found objects, either working them directly into charms or borrowing motifs to impress in sterling silver.
"The first thing I think about when designing a new piece is 'would I want to wear this myself?'
