Ruth Lyne

On holiday as a child, I loved beach combing, spending many hours with my collections of tiny treasures. I hope this jewellery can evoke similar memories of finding the perfect pebble glistening in the sunshine.

Although inspired by the coast, I make each item of jewellery in my studio in rural Northamptonshire, a long way from the sea.

Details about work or recent projects

I cut sheets of handmade glass into very small pieces and fuse them together in a kiln, at temperatures of over 800 °C or 1470 °F, combining transparent and opal glass with dichroic and iridescent layers to create jewels that catch the light and shimmer with every movement

...perfect for jewellery.
