 Under the careful tutelage of Melody Burns, jewelry becomes a form of wearable art.  Burns is the owner/designer of Kiini Ibura Jewelry, a line that has attracted stars such as Erykah Badu, Jill Scott and Angie Stone.  The appeal is owed to many features such as the precious and semi-precious stones she uses including, fresh water pearls, Ghanaian glass and African amber and Austrian crystals.  Burns sells her designs out of her Fort Greene, Brooklyn boutique and has been featured in The New York Times, ELLE and Essence magazines.
