With both Welsh and British roots, Lynn was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada to a British-born father who travelled to Canada as a child with his war-bride mother. Lynn has designed and made silver jewellery since 2000, when she first began studying jewellery art and design in Vancouver, before moving to the UK. An active Gold Member of the Guild of British Jewellery Designers, she is motivated by the idea of forging an eclectic union of new and old, as well as raising awareness to reducing our footprint on the planet.
Lynn incorporates her connection to the outdoors into her work by using shards unearthed from the ground and sea, or working with broken shards that were destined to be thrown away. She uses non-toxic, food-grade chemicals during the silversmithing process; she sources recycled silver wire and sheet for her jewellery; and repurposes fabric sample boards for her packaging.
Inspired by the UK’s Pottery Industry, Lynn loves reconnecting with the craftsmen of the past and ensuring their stories aren’t lost by upcycling their work and repurposing it. She enjoys the process of unearthing pottery shards and researching their story – How did it get here? Who made it? What was the pattern name? Each piece comes with the provenance Lynn has been able to uncover, connecting you to the land and history of the shard.
