Emerging Talent / UK


Matilde Mozzanega is a contemporary Jewellery maker and designer based in London. Graduated from Central Saint Martins with a First Class Honours Degree in BA Jewellery Design (2018), she now produces her own pieces and works as a tutor at the British Academy of Jewellery.

Her work sits within the context of Contemporary Jewellery & Sustainability.
She is in fact interested in the qualities of non-precious materials, how to transform and repurpose them.

This collection consists of playful, contemporary necklaces made out of Swarovski crystals and flowers, vacuum sealed within recyclable plastic pouches.

The innovation of the design dwells on the playfulness and possibility of exchanging vacuum sealed ‘pouch pendants’ with already existing chains or swapping them with someone else.

So my design proposal encourages us to rethink the idea of jewellery and draws attention to a contemporary issue that affects us all.
