Mel Young is an established contemporary jeweller whose practice spans exhibition work and studio production jewellery. She primarily engages with the idea of ‘place’ and explorations of materiality, with an emphasis on found, natural or re-purposed materials as vehicles for narrative. She has a particular interest in low-tech making, and a passion for hand-making string (or cordage). Mel is a firm believer that a great deal can be done with very little, as such her work explores and incorporates elements from a broad range of craft practices including textiles. Her skills in coil weaving and cordage creation are astonishing, Mel is always twiddling away at something!
