Scottish designer Sarah Lindsay makes her jewellery in her garden studio in north
London. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2002 she has been
developing her use of acrylic. Her innovative technique has allowed her to exhibit in
shops and galleries throughout the UK, Europe, America and Japan. Some of the shops
she has sold through include Margaret Howell, V&A, Tate Modern and San Francisco
She hand makes her own material from acrylic particles which is why her work is entitled
the 'Dust Collection'. The name suggests change and the eroded looking edges of the
thin slices are reminiscent of minerals like agate, built up in layers over time. These
translucent slices of acrylic are then made into lightweight jewellery designs.
Sarah's design approach is to make simple pieces for everyday use. Comfort is central in her lightweight earrings, mouldable necklaces, magnetic brooches and wrap bangles.
