Mel handmakes Sterling Silver jewellery.
She lives with Psoriatic Arthritis which sadly forced her to give up work. She has always had a huge passion for creating, it has always been natural for her to do, so she decided to pursue her daydreams and return to college as a mature student age 47, now or never!!
She says “It has been truly amazing, another of life’s journeys. I have learnt new skills, met new people, overcome new challenges, it has been life enriching. So now, I’m proud to say I am a fully trained self employed Silversmith. I still study & attend workshops to keep my skills up to date with new trends and techniques. I try to make my designs fresh, organic and timeless, they are hand crafted with my good & honest Yorkshire love from my studio here in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.”
Every cloud…does actually have a silver lining for her
