About Nadia Engelstoft - Mellow Moon
My name is Nadia and I am the woman behind Mellow Moon Jewelry.
Born and raised just outside of Victoria BC, I grew up working with my hands and immersed in arts and crafts. I was lucky enough to be offered jewelry classes in my public high school by an awesome teacher, which jumpstarted me onto the path of silversmithing. Since high school, I have pieced together a small jewelry studio of my own and have continued to hone my skills and teach myself new techniques. I love getting lost in the process. I make everything myself and rarely draw out designs before starting - I usually follow my spontaneous creativity. I am so happy to have found myself on the path of jewelry making. It is my creative outlet. The name “Mellow Moon Jewelry” comes from my partner Evan Cheadle’s song “Mellow Moon.”
I am environmentally conscious and passionate about reducing my footprint. I mostly buy my silver from a small local, family-owned business. This supports the local economy and also reduces the impacts of shipping. I recycle any scrap of silver created in the process by melting it into silver beads used to adorn my work. - Nadia
