Originally I started designing and making my own beaded and wire jewellery when I was around 13 years old, I learned most of my techniques in this area from my Mum who was and still is an avid beader herself.
My main inspiration comes from mixing materials and metals. I work a lot with pewter, copper, fine silver (Precious Metal Clay), birch ply and sterling silver.
I love using semi precious stones,freshwater pearls crystals, glass and leather too. Although I am starting to phase out animal products (leather and pearls) now and plan to be ‘cruelty free’ by April 2016.
All the different textures through these various mediums lends a rustic and tactile feel to my work and I am always exploring different ways to use them together.
My style is a very organic, rustic and has a light boho feel. I like to use the raw textures in materials and either enhance or decorate them to show their true beauty.
Really lovely bracelet, true to its picture. Very pleased with the bracelet and delighted to have received it so quickly.
Big thank you to Lydia for producing something so beautiful and so personal! I absolutely loved it and so did the bride & groom! Stunning!
Absolutely love the bracelet you made for my friend Helen who gave it to me for Christmas. Can’t see it coming off anytime soon! Beautiful!
