‘Drawing inspiration from themes of collecting memories I create playful jewellery which might explore a fleeting moment, a chance encounter or a material souvenir charged with meaning. Referencing shape, form, colour and pattern to realise each piece of jewellery I hope to create something which has both familiar and yet foreign associations, perhaps triggering a vague memory for the viewer and hopefully raising a smile!’
Working from her studio in rural Wiltshire, Lindsey constructs jewellery using hand-printed anodised aluminium, precious and non-precious metals and a host of found and formed materials. She employs low-tech hand processes including screen and block printing onto anodised aluminium and traditional metalwork techniques.
Lindsey’s jewellery is sold internationally and has been featured in various books, journals and magazines. She is the author of ‘Colourful Aluminium Jewellery: design & make’ published by A&C Black, 2010, in which she shares some of the techniques used to colour her own work.
