Melly is a contemporary jeweller and artist based in Hobart, Tasmania.
Her work is primarily inspired by meditation and natures law of change – the only constant in life.
With this in mind, her goal is to create high quality, interesting work that the owner can interact with in some way.
Melly tends to use few precious stones in her jewellery, preferring instead to experiment with numerous metals and materials.
She creates little vessels that house textiles that can be changed by the wearer to suit colour taste changes and mood. Her hope is to inspire creativity in others.
The Sleeping Stone sculptures were born out Melly’s desire to display her jewellery. She loves the idea of her jewellery existing off the body in its own right and being enjoyed
just as much when not being worn.
