Material: Jewellery | Location: Wiltshire
Lindsey Mann is a contemporary jewellery maker based in rural Wiltshire. Finding inspiration in daily life, domestic textile patterns, her collection of tin toys, gardening or simply a walk in the woods, she is interested in capturing snippets of information and offering a glimpse of a moment in time. Her jewellery is characterised by a soft industrial aesthetic peppered with a hint of modern nostalgia.
Mark-making and a considered use of colour are the foundation of Lindsey’s work. Anodised aluminium sheet acts as the perfect canvas for her screenprinted designs which are laid down as large scale images. Cutting into the printed designs for each piece of jewellery she shares just a fragment of the bigger picture. Combining precious with non-precious materials to create pieces which are layered, framed or contained, Lindsey chooses low-tech hand processes and traditional metalwork techniques enabling her to work intuitively, creating one-off pieces each and every time.
