Lucy Jade Sylvester
Fine Botanical Jewelry

New York – January 17, 2019   NY Now is a new show for Lucy Jade Sylvester; she is exhibiting her jewelry alongside other designers who have been brought to New York by Craft Scotland. Lucy will be showing her jewelry, inspired by the nature, in Booth 1262 at the NY NOW 2019 winter market in New York City from February 3-6, 2019.
Lucy believes you cannot compete with the beauty of nature, its perfect lines and textures, so uses it as directly as possible in her jewelry.
After walks near her Oxfordshire studio, she takes moulds from her delicate woodland finds. Lucy casts into the cavity they leave, the process allowing her to create exact replicas of life in solid gold and silver that retain the finest details.
“These natural forms with beautiful textures would decay into the ground and be gone forever; with direct casting from them I’ve created something that will now be here forever, to be worn for a life time.”
Botanical bridal engagement rings cast from twisted twigs and leaves are set with brilliant cut, rose cut and uncut diamonds. These can be paired with woven grass, leaf vein or lichen textured woodland wedding bands in widths to suit all. These rings provide a timeless alternative for those who love the patterns and textures provided by the natural world.
The Great British stag beetle, bees, and hawk moths have all been given a new life in solid silver and gold by the nature loving jeweler. Her Hawk moth ring was chosen by costume designer Michele Clapton to be worn by Sansa Stark in the hit medieval TV series Game of Thrones.
“My work is evolving all the time; as the seasons change, the inspiration is new once more.”
