Welcome! My name is Melissa Senetar. I am a Kentucky artist and Ph.D. biochemist who makes resin jewelry with insect wings set in sterling silver or brass.

My retail gallery and working artist studio called PhbeaD (an acronym of PhD and bead) is located at 327 Chestnut Street Suite 4 in Berea, KY 1 mile from I-75 south off exit 76. Regular business hours are Tuesday-Thursday 1-5:30pm or by special appointmentI exhibit my work at art shows and festivals throughout the year and you can also find my work in numerous stores.

Please note prices have changed moderately since my last web update. I will get the listings updated as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
