Lucy makes jewellery using precious metals and vitreous enamel inspired by the Devon landscape.

Category: Jewellery Silver Enamelling
Lucy has been working as a jewellery designer and maker for almost two decades. Her work is made from precious metals and vitreous enamel. She did a degree in fine art before going on to study jewellery and silversmithing at the John Cass College, London. The art of enamelling is central to her work. She works with transparent, opalescent and opaque vitreous enamels and often places 24 carat gold foil between the layers of glass. Etching and engraving the surface of the metal which shows through the layers of enamel giving each piece greater depth. Each item requires multiple firings to build up the layers of enamel and consequently takes many hours to produce. 

Her designs are often process led but Lucy has always been inspired by the skies and landscape of Cumbria where she grew up. Since moving to Devon Lucy has found Dartmoor and its shifting landscape a source of inspiration. She tries to create jewellery that feels already worn and designs and makes each piece herself. Lucy uses ecosilver and fairtrade gold in her work.
