Multi-award winner Gina Melosi launched her label in A/W 2011-12 with the directional debut jewellery collection //SHATTERED fragments//. It won the acclaim of both trade and fashion press and secured the eponymous Selfridges as a stockist. The sharp, yet organic aesthetic can be seen on artists as diverse as Cara Delevingne, Amanda Stenberg, Ezra Miller and Zinnia Kumar.
The Texas born jeweller trained at London’s Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design. Gina’s background in Fine Art Photography, Studio Art, and Classical Music informs her conceptual, yet organic designs. She is inspired by the broken, overlooked, and abandoned, giving ready-made found objects new life in recycled metals and ethically sourced stones.
Her designs have launched at Paris, London, and Milan fashion weeks, in addition to shows in the Middle East (as part of the Best of British Jewellery at Jewellery Arabia), the Netherlands, and the United States. Recent press includes ELLE and Harper’s Bazaar.
“It is an honor to have been accepted on the Jewellery Pioneer Programme. The mentorship I have already received has been hugely beneficial, and I’ve only just begun! I look forward to the next several months working together, learning, growing, improving, expanding… I am very grateful for this opportunity with the CFE.”
