Melissa McArthur established her business originally from a small Clerkenwell workshop in 1998, straight after graduating with a BA Hons in Jewellery Design from London’s prestigious, Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design. A central element of her philosophy is a desire for simplicity which is made special by her attention to detail, meticulous craftsmanship and quality control. Her inspiration: architecture, modernist design, furniture, art, and many periods of fashion and travel. Melissa loves to dissect her favourite architecture, finding fluid lines which play with positive and negative space which are then applied to the female form. The designed, man-made lines accentuate the accidental beauty of the natural gems and pearls which she finds on her travels.Her designs are versatile, easy to wear and ultra-feminine in style.
