At Collect 2017 Georgacopoulos showed her jewellery collection, for the first time using Mother of Pearl.

Petronilla Silver at 8 Holland Street, London W8 4LT June 6 - July 1 2018 will show Georgacopoulos' new pieces from this fabulous collection which aims to explore the potential of Mother of Pearl and its beautiful iridescent multi colours. By taking this flat material and creating seamless three dimensional diamond and emerald forms, Melanie continues to discover new relationships between gemstones and pearls in contemporary jewellery.

Her 2007 Royal College of Art M.A. exhibition explored the idea of deconstructing the pearl necklace, since when she has worked almost exclusively with pearls.

Awards include Theo Fennel Prize (highly commended). In 2007 she was featured in a Financial Times article written by Janice Blackburn entitled "Heirlooms of Tomorrow".
