About the Author

Anastasia Young is a UK-based jewelry artist, author and lecturer whose work has been exhibited internationally. Young's eclectic jewelry is often project-based and driven by a combination of ideas and technical investigation; she uses narrative to explore both the design of a piece and its display when not being worn. Examples of her work are held in the permanent collections of the Science Museum, London and Central Saint Martins Museum. Young is a graduate of the Royal College of Art and Central Saint Martins, where she lectures and taught short courses in jewelry making. Currently she lectures at the prestigious School of Jewellery in Birmingham. Having written three technical jewelry books (Thames & Hudson, A&C Black) which have been translated into seven languages, Young is well known as an educator and through her teaching and writing. In 2017, Anastasia was appointed to the board of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery, and is also the Technical Features Editor of its biannual magazine, Findings.


Paul Wells is an award-winning UK-based silversmith and jeweler, renowned for his use of curved-score folding techniques. Wells' silverware makes innovative use of fold-forming and he has developed a method of creating curved scores which can be used to fold sheet metal in a visually stunning and unique style. His technique has been recognised by Goldsmiths' Crafts and Design Council with two Gold Awards for Technological Innovation. Wells' exploration of this technique has led to the production of intrinsically organic silver forms which almost appear to have grown themselves into existence, creating confounding biomorphic designs that are both functional and decorative. Having taught at several London colleges for two decades, Paul Wells is a respected educator and keen advocate of direct metalworking techniques, and has contributed to many books published by Quarto, Thames & Hudson and A&C Black.
