Every iconic piece of fine jewellery that has ever been created is likely to have started life as a pencil sketch. At Fitzgerald we create skillful designs, carefully thought-out by our expert in-house jewellery designer, Melanie Bushrod.
Melanie first discovered jewellery and metalsmithing in 2005 at the University of Creative Arts in Rochester from where she graduated with a BA Hons in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing & jewellery design. Melanie is passionate about designing and making jewellery for people who appreciate the lighter side of life.
She has been classically trained in her art alongside a Master Goldsmith in Canterbury and knows exactly how a piece of jewellery should be made so that it is perfectly balanced. Her jewellery celebrates individuality and personal style – unusual pieces that you will not find on the high street; jewellery made specifically with your desires in mind.
Melanie is using ancient, traditional techniques to create stunning heirlooms to be handed down to future generations, made with love and an awareness of design and lasting style.
She designs jewellery pieces with beauty, balance and comfort of the client in mind and suited to the wearer’s individual hand, their personal style as well as lifestyle. Every single piece is designed and created in our fully equipped workshop.
At Fitzgerald, we believe a piece of jewellery should not only look beautiful, but also be a joy to the wearer and an object of admiration to others. Therefore, we invite you to our fully equipped workshop in the heart of historic city of Canterbury to have the chance to have unique items, carefully constructed to create a stunning visual impact just for you!
