Under the name 'Pearl and the Moon', Melanie makes jewellery using sterling and fine silver and semi-precious stones from her little workshop on the leafy Surrey / Hampshire border. 

Her pieces are made and finished by hand, using traditional silver smithing techniques and textured using rocks, slate and various tools purloined from relatives sheds and toolboxes when they are not looking. 

Melanie’s jewellery is only lightly polished to retain the natural, earthy and organic look left by her texturing techniques. The stones she chooses bring her jewellery closer to the elements through their natural colours and textures.
