"MY CURIOSITY IS AN UNQUENCHABLE THIRST. I GET MY HANDS DIRTY SEEKING ANSWERS TO LIFE'S MYSTERIES BUT ALWAYS DISCOVERING MORE ON THE WAY." - Jade Mellor
"There is so much to learn and so many ideas to share, it can be overwhelming. By focusing it into wearable objects I find these mind blowing concepts more manageable." Jade
From the buried treasures of Pompeii to jewels found in meteorites and asteroids falling to earth over millennia; Jade Mellor wants to evoke the feeling of uncovering gems that have practically become part of the landscape through the wearing of time, but originate from another world or civilisation.
A degree in 3D Design at Manchester School of Art let Jade combine her background in art and fashion with new experiments in resin, guided by her sisters and their passion for making and learning.
The techniques she continues to develop push this medium and her further research into natural history, ancient civilisation and passion for nature's jewels result in exciting colours and textures in processes inspired by fossilisation and mineral structures.
