Hello I am Melissa Montague a metalsmith based in Sheffield, originally from Lincoln. I create collections of mixed metal objects and jewellery using traditional silversmithing techniques. I studied metalwork and jewellery many years ago in High Wycombe, Bucks and came to Sheffield in 2012 to do an MA in design.
My is work very much material led and explores traditional silversmithing techniques such as hammer raising and forging alongside constructed pieces. I am passionate about all things handmade and passing on skills to others, which I do through teaching jewellery and craft workshops at Studio Budgie Galore, Sheffield.
In my Etsy shop you will find an eclectic selection of metal objects such as copper bowls and vessels along with various collections of jewellery all created from scratch by me. Alongside my own collections I also love to work with clients to create special commissions.
