We are delighted to open Series 3 with an authority in the jewellery world and the 2022 Gem Award Winner for Media Excellence - Mel Grant. Mel is an award-winning author, writer, curator, stylist and art director and has written a definitive book on key designers and curated an influential exhibition celebrating black jewellery talent for Sotheby’s New York. She is the Jewellery Editor for The Economist and writes for Vogue, Vanity Fair and Tatler. One of her earliest memories is twirling around her grandmother’s garden wearing all of her jewellery and being captivated by the experience. She also knew that she wanted to be a journalist from when she was eight. Her writing is alive with the vibrancy and joy of having combined those two passions. I’m delighted to welcome Melanie Grant to My Life In Seven Charms .
