Lauren Visconti-Beckett/ Melting Sun Apparel
Lauren Visconti-Beckett created Melting Sun Apparel on January 1st, 2012 in her tiny Atlanta, Georgia home. A recent art graduate, Lauren was looking for an inspired outlet, which her jewelry and leather-working hobby soon began to fill. Turning into an obsession, the coffee table accumulated a mountain of leather scraps and jump-rings: orders began to arrive. As each unique piece was commissioned and sold, Lauren soon realized she had to name the business she had so happily stumbled upon. Melting Sun Apparel continues to grow by selling wares in local and regional art markets and festivals. Various retail shops and boutiques also carry Melting Sun products, both nationally and internationally.
