Unique textured silver bangle by Cornish jeweller Lucy Spink.

The texture on the silver is made by reticulation which is a process of heating and cooling the metal a number of times to depletion guild the silver before finally heating it until the silver melts and pools.

Each process makes a completely unique piece of silver with markings like a finger print making this textured silver bangle the perfect gift for someone who loves ethical handcrafted jewellery inspired by nature.

Lucy’s work manifests her sympathy with nature and her understanding of its fragility. It is beautifully handcrafted, textured jewellery which speaks of the details of our natural environment and the deeply rooted human connection to landscape. Each piece feels as precious as that pebble you curl your hand around and slip into your pocket as a reminder.

“I have spent the majority of my life in big natural landscapes, moorland and parks, mountains and coastlines. The outdoors is my get away and my sanity. It is the place where I find clarity and calm. I have become more aware of the growing separation of society from the rhythms of nature and have chosen to express this through jewellery.”

Using her Granddad’s old workshop tools, each piece she makes shows the marks of process and the beauty of form, reflecting the patterns of nature – the outline shapes of rocky outcrops, the surface patterns made by hammers like the texture of stone, small spurs of silver and gold to replicate the growth patterns of lichens.
