Anastasia Young in her studio.

Anastasia Young is an independent jewellery artist, author and lecturer, whose jewellery has been exhibited internationally. Young’s eclectic jewellery is often project based and driven by a combination of ideas and technical exploration. She uses narrative to explore both the design of a piece and its display when not being worn.

Having written three technical jewellery books (Thames & Hudson, A&C Black) which have been translated into seven languages, Anastasia Young is well known as an educator, through her teaching and writing. She regularly lectures at Central Saint Martins and Morley College.
