Lucy Sylvester

Lucy Jade Sylvester has always had a love of nature – her long walks in the countryside are evident in her studio, which is full of old glass jars filled with seed heads, fallen leaves and dead insects.

From her Oxfordshire studio Lucy transforms the fragile poppy seed heads, sycamore seeds, acorns, twigs, bees and insects into exact replicas in solid silver and gold.

These natural forms are often combined with moonstones, labradorite, pearls, opals and diamonds, the fine details of her jewellery are enhanced by darkening the metals before  polishing the surface.

Lucy has been awarded Silver for the Craft and Design Awards and was selected  as Editors Choice at the Country Living Fair in London, she has exhibited internationally including The British Embassy in Delhi and St Petersburg Russia.

Lucy’s Hawk Moth and poppy ring can be seen on the medieval fantasy television drama Game of Thrones on the hand of Sansa Stark.

Her work has been published in books in the USA and UK, and has been featured in Vogue, Tatler, Observer, Red and The English Garden magazine confirming her as the leading designer for all those who love the natural world and our fabulous countryside.

“ Each new season or place visited brings fresh inspiration and objects to work with.”

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 86 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
