Angie Mehew

Angie’s colourful jewellery is hand-crafted in her Surrey studio using jesmonite resin, sterling silver and nylon braided cord. Her modern aesthetic and playful colour palettes are inspired by everyday encounters; mid-century design, colour and pattern; and artists such as Ellsworth Kelly, Matisse and Patrick Heron. After achieving a First Class Hons Degree at Central St Martins she trained as a fine jewellery designer and worked for a number of high end brands for over 10 years, before moving from London to set up her home studio.
Her colour-saturated necklaces, pendants and earrings have a contemporary feel, using bold, playful shapes with a smooth, tactile finish. Earrings are light-weight to wear and pendants and necklaces are pop-over in style with a woven sliding ‘clasp’, allowing them to be worn long or short.
Jesmonite is an eco-friendly, water-based resin primarily used in sculpture, prop-making and architectural detailing. Angie’s process starts with a hand-carved plaster-of-paris master shape or motif. She then makes a mould of every motif ready to receive the resin. The resin is hand coloured using a combination of primary colour pigments to create each bespoke colour palette, thoroughly mixed and hand poured into the molds. Once cured the shapes are sanded and finished pebble-smooth, then assembled into jewellery.
