Inspirations and ideas

lilybraceletWhen Melanie is not working on commission pieces, she designs and makes jewellery for sale. Inspirations come from the environment, especially organic and floral forms.

Melanie has developed her own unique and distinctive style which she describes as delicate but robust, exclusive and accessible…

My work has a predominate theme of floral and other organic shapes. My special affinity for Arum lilies has inspired me to find ways of working with metals to emulate their elegant forms.
Turning my ideas into reality involves forging and shaping the metals using anti-clastic bends and occasionally fold-forming allowing me to move metals into forms to create unique and unusual designs.

For examples, see my commissions pages.
