Like the vintage wooden dolls in this post, this stunning Lucy Sylvester ring was a gift to me for my birthday at the start of September - and I've scarcely had it off my finger since! Bought from one of my absolute favourite jewellery shops, Brighton's Jewel Thief, the ring takes the form of an intricately veined silver leaf that wraps around the finger as a drop of beautiful moonstone clings to the leaf, its haunting colour changing with the light. Below you can see some of the texture and veining on the leaf . . .
Profile: Since completing an MA at Birmingham's School of Jewellery, Lucy has been working from her Oxfordshire studio. Working in silver, gold and platinum, she introduces colour through chemical treatment of the metal to enhance fine details and textures, also through faceted or uncut stones.
What do you think of Lucy Sylvester's designs? I'd love to know!
