One of the best things about running Bishop Phillpott is sourcing new and exciting labels to bring to you in Cornwall, we love our buying trips, especially when we stumble across something truly special. So when we found Melissa Curry and her absolutely stunning jewellery designs on a recent trip we just had to have them...NOW!
Melissa debuted her design and jewellery career when chosen by Liberty of London, to spearhead their global Millennium jewellery campaign. Her worldly and celebrated Parisian brand then, Melissa C. jewellery, became a distinct and much sought after label landing in global boutiques in NY, Japan, Paris,London.
Melissa's regenerative vision and powerful design brought collaborations with leading brand names such as Absolut, Swarvoski, Toni & Guy, Phillipe Stark @ Bon, all of whom commissioned her to collaborate on one-off projects that unified branding with fresh and exciting concepts, narrative and visionary drive.
Melissa is influenced by world events as well as personal and cultural history. Her designs reflect a variety of moods, from the ancient power of China, to the romance of film, and the mystic of Celtic mythology and tribalism. Her Smarties Collection is her interpretation of the need for hope and endurance, designed during the Obama Presidential Campaign and presented to Michelle Obama during her state visit in Ireland last year.
Melissa was chosen to create a collection for a dear friend of The Duchess of Cambridge at The Royal Wedding. Her collection "Midnight Royale' was worn to the Buckingham Palace celebration.
Melissa's beautiful jewellery is now available exclusively at Bishop Phillpott, including these fabulous designs and more. The perfect way to really make an outfit, we love these statement pieces.
