Sustained – March 2023

‘Sustained’ is an exhibition of work from 39 staff and recent graduates of the Central Saint Martins BA Jewellery Design course for Munich Jewellery Week 2023. Central Saint Martins were delighted to finally return to Vitsœ in Munich following a three-year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Drawing from Vitsœ’s inimitable design ethos and reflecting the breadth of enquiry encouraged at Central Saint Martins, Sustained explored and celebrated the endurance of creativity during the exceptional circumstances of the past few years.

Melanie decided to debut the ‘Twist Necklace‘ at the exhibition, which explores movement and the notion of contrast through scale and colour. Totally made from gold scraps and letfover pearls in Melanie’s studio, the necklace is a subtle celebration of the way in which we as creatives keep on moving and creating no matter what.
