Anastasia Young is a jewellery artist, author and lecturer, whose work has been exhibited internationally. Young’s eclectic jewellery 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 or used. Examples of her work are held in the permanent collections of the Science Museum, London and Central Saint Martins Museum.

She recently received a Silver award for her copperplate engraving from the Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Council, and is interested in the cross-discipline application of traditional craft skills and techniques within contemporary practise. At the moment, this focuses on the intersection between engraving and printmaking.

Anastasia is a graduate of the Royal College of Art and Central Saint Martins College, where she lectured and taught short courses in jewellery making for 20 years. Having written four technical jewellery books (Thames & Hudson, A&C Black, Hoaki) which have been translated into seven languages and are regarded as key text books in their subject area, Anastasia Young is well known as an educator, through her teaching and writing.

In 2017, Anastasia was appointed to the board of The Association for Contemporary Jewellery, and is also involved with the Hand Engravers Association and the Society of Jewellery Historians.
