Melanie founded the wonderful Kokkino in 2003. She works with sterling silver, 22ct gold plating, oxidisation and vitreous enamels, to produce a sophisticated range of colour palettes and surface textures. Her love of colour, working with silver and enamels and time spent in Greece led her to choose the company name Kokkino, meaning ‘red’ in Greek. Kokkino has established a name for itself as elegantly simple, wearable, contemporary jewellery. Each collection is created by hand with an emphasis on high quality workmanship and timeless designs.
