Inspiration flows from the natural environment around Lucy's studio in Argyll with her love of nature shining through her work. Constantly searching for intricate natural forms Lucy works to capture nature's wild magic in her one-off pieces.

Using natural finds and textures, with recycled silver and gold, nature's beauty is preserved forever.

Alongside creating ready to wear pieces Lucy works mostly by commission. Working closely with clients creating bespoke pieces, often including natural items collected by the client, creating meaningful and personal jewellery and keepsakes.

ProcesS

using eco friendly and recycled precious metals

My pieces are made using eco friendly, recycled silver and gold

salvaged from waste products such as electronics and computers.

The recovered precious metals are ground down to a fine powder

then mixed with a natural binder and water creating

a clay type material or a paste.

During firing the water and binder burn away,

allowing the precious metals to sinter,

leaving pure silver (999) and 22 carat gold (916).
