BAJ Podcast | A diverse jewellery career and supporting others

In this episode, we have a conversation with writer, jewellery designer and director of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery Melanie Eddy on her practice, the ACJ, and her diverse career in jewellery.

Melanie Eddy creates sculptural jewellery that uses geometry as a tool to explore the relationship of form to the body. She is involved in the jewellery trade in design, manufacture, critical writing, and facilitating creative and professional development. 

Melanie has collaborated with organisations such as the V&A and the British Council. In addition, she has worked in South Asia with organisations like Turquoise Mountain and the Aga Khan Foundation on jewellery training and business development initiatives. She teaches jewellery on the MA Design programme at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design and is a visiting lecturer at other higher education institutions.
