With a background in sculpture, Melanie Georgacopoulos works with materials in unexpected ways to release their potential and stimulate new interpretations. She began her exploration of pearls during her Jewellery Master’s at London’s RCA in 2006. Since then, the paradoxical, intriguing nature of pearls and mother of pearl has been at the core of every piece, whilst the aesthetic remains simple, structured and timeless. She continually strives to challenge the existing preconceptions of these organic materials and that of traditional jewellery design itself.
