Lucy 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, leaves and dead insects.
From her Oxfordshire studio Lucy transforms fragile poppy seed heads, sycamore seeds, acorns, twigs, bees and insects into exact replicas in solid silver and gold.
Lucy won Silver in 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 and ex Dragons Den Theo Paphitis selected her business to join his Small Business Sunday Club.
Lucy's Hawk Moth and Poppy ring can be seen on the medieval fantasy drama Game of Thrones on the hand of Sansa Stark. Her works been published in books in the USA and UK, and has been featured in Vogue & The English Garden magazine confirming her as the leading designer for all those who love the natural world and our fabulous countryside.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
