Melanie Ankers

Over her 13 years as a jewelry designer, Melanie Ankers has built a reputation for creating beautiful pieces with deliberate design, exquisite craftsmanship and a modern twist. A silversmithing and jewelry graduate from the Jewellery School in Birmingham, England, Ankers uses sterling silver, gold plating and oxidization to produce a sophisticated color palette and a range of subtle surface textures. She is fascinated by the way that repeating a simple shape can give a work a unique rhythm and cadence, and how color can utterly transform it. Each piece is formed using innovative techniques, both traditional and modern, a process that creates interesting textures. Ankers often incorporates mobile elements, bringing each piece to life and making them more interactive for the wearer. She creates ethereal, yet wearable, unique pieces that range in style from everyday glamour to catwalk drama.
