Mweya

Bio

Mweya is a handcrafted collection of jewelry combining statement-making materials with minimalist design to create rich, versatile pieces for everyday adornment. Launched in 2016 by designer, Melanie Edmunds, this ever-evolving line was inspired by her travels throughout South Africa. Each design plays with materials and colors reminiscent of the country’s landscape, architecture and culture. Her background in African diaspora art history informs the direction of the collection’s designs, while her appreciation for simplicity and detail is reflected in the materials and craftsmanship of the jewelry. With Mweya, she has created an aesthetic that is sophisticated, timeless and bold. Mweya jewelry is made entirely by hand in Los Angeles, California. Each piece is one-of-a-kind.
