The MM Foundation
Our mission is to provide a platform to nurture new creative talent and we are delighted to announce the launch of our 2023 initiative,
The Maya Magal Foundation.
What is the
The MM Foundation offers new jewellery makers a pathway into the industry,
whilst working as part of a professional jewellery team.
With training and access to workshop facilities, each jeweller is given the opportunity to hone their skills in a live and creative environment. The 2023 MM Foundation exhibition will showcase six upcoming jewellers throughout the year.
Each jeweller has created a limited edition design, available exclusively to purchase in our Coal Drops Yard store, with 100% of the profits going directly back to the jeweller.
Store manager & operations assistant
Megan likes to engage with modern concepts and expressions within the framework of traditional jewellery craftsmanship. Her work focuses on the historical significance of signet rings, which have long been powerful symbols of identity and social status, their engravings often authenticating important documents and correspondences.
Part of a series called "You Are What You Eat" her "English Breakfast Ring" is a signet ring for the present age, exploring evolving ideas of identity and inviting viewers to contemplate the metamorphosis of the phrase "You Are What You Eat," originally a means of food judgment, into a playful exploration of personal identity.
