Alice Menter

Alice Menter is a UK designer, who gained a first class BA Hons degree at Middlesex University in Contemporary Jewellery Design. Inspired by her time with the Yao Mien hill tribe in Northern Thailand, she explores the boundaries between jewellery, clothing and body adornment. Her techniques initially investigated ways of joining metals without soldering. Today, she silver and gold plates everyday objects such as nuts, washers, zips and bolts, and combines them with suede, lycra and chain. The combination of contrasting materials used in Alice's designs create pieces that are bold yet intricate, and industrial whilst remaining luxurious and feminine.
