Who are the speakers?
Megan Brown began her career studying fashion design at Edinburgh College of Art. Her first introduction to jewellery was from a local jeweller who offered to teach her how to create a piece for herself. Her designs instantly caught attention, with subsequent one-off creations and the decision to launch her own brand ‘Megan Brown Jewellery’. Today her designs draw on her background in fashion, and an intuitive instinct she utilises in her bespoke creations.
Clio Saskia studied contemporary Sculpture at Camberwell College of Arts before escaping to the Australian outback where she spent a year learning from a Master Jeweller and mining sapphire and precious gemstones - many of which she uses in her fine jewellery designs. Since starting her business in 2018, Clio has won a number of awards for her playful designs and launched her first collection after completing the year-long incubation course, Setting Out, at The Goldsmiths Centre. Clio’s work is inspired by weird and wonderful creatures from our natural world, which she brings to life through intricately detailed wax carving and traditional goldsmithing techniques.
