BiographyMelinda Zingg-Zampetti is an educated photographer, artist and art historian living in Switzerland. Her art and photography education began at Tyler School of Art (Temple University) in Philadelphia and was completed at Parsons School of Design in New York City; obtaining a BFA photography with honors. After graduation she worked at various venues from a wedding photography studio to a digital retouching studio. Later she taught herself web production that landed her a position at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia in 1997 as the Imaging Technology Assistant for the website department.

After moving to Switzerland in 1999 with her Swiss husband, she worked as an assistant web designer. In 2004 the opportunity arose to take on a long time desire to study art history. After nearly a decade of part-time studying, she was awarded a BA in art history in 2011 and the MA in 2014 from the Open University (UK). During the time of studying for the Masters Degree she started making jewelry in her spare time and after graduation pursued it devotedly. After many months with long hours of teaching herself techniques and producing trial pieces, she crafted a few masterpiece necklaces that were refined and unique. With these she opened her ETSY online shop, Zinggimaging, in April 2015.

After selling over 700 pieces, mostly online, she reinvented her style. In 2022 she launched a new shop with a brand name: Creazioni E'Linda.
