Lucy Sylvester produces beautiful jewellery inspired by nature, with many of her hand-crafted pieces reflecting the shapes and textures of leaves, bark, seeds and petals.
Since completing an MA at Birmingham’s School of Jewellery, Lucy has been working from her Oxfordshire studio to produce a wide-ranging jewellery collection that includes rings, bracelets, pendants, earrings, brooches and pins. Since graduating she has also been listed as a finalist in the 2012 Craft & Design Awards.
Lucy works in silver for her main collection and in gold and platinum for her fine jewellery. She introduces colour through chemical treatment of the metal to enhance fine details and textures and also adds faceted or uncut stones – including precious stones such as diamonds and sapphire – to add colour and interest to her pieces.
Prices range from around £45 for silver earrings, up to £2,700 for a magnificent Jubilee neckpiece of a solid silver stag beetle studded with diamonds, rubies and sapphires. Many pieces are around the £100 to £150 range.
