Meet Lizzie, a jeweller from Gloucestershire new to Heart Gallery and Hebden Bridge for Summer 2018.
We are delighted to be showcasing Lizzie’s FLOTSAM collection. this has been inspired by her collection of beach combed flotsam and jetsam.
Lizzie doesn’t just collect the driftwood that has been contorted into different shapes but picks up everyday items that have been on a journey. These pieces have been tumbled and tossed by the sea for hours before being spat out on the shoreline to be discovered.
Something prompts Lizzie to pick a piece up and pop it in her bag. It may be repetitive marks and lines or the holes made by shipworms.
Sometimes it is just the silhouette that speaks to her. Each piece forms inspiration and becomes the the marks that are echoed in her fine art jewellery pieces.
All Lizzie’s work is unique with each piece having its own dynamic and influence.
Each piece of jewellery is handmade from start to finish and drawn on using graphite, coloured pencil, paint and gold leaf. No two pieces are identical.
