Lynsey Walters + Carla Edwards
OPEN: First weekend only - 1-3 Sept
Lynsey is also at the Maker's Market 8-10 Sept
Two jewellers whose work beautifully complements each other: Lynsey Walters’ colourful felt jewellery combining handmade and industrial felt, and Carla Edwards’ vibrant resin jewellery.
Lynsey creates wearable wool jewellery and hair accessories inspired by her vintage collections and a quiky view of colour. The jewellery is based loosely on an imaginary garden crossed with a delicious haberdashery shop. The work is strongly coloured and has a delightful nostalgic charm.
Carla Edwards designs and makes contemporary jewellery from her workshop in Leith, Edinburgh. The small details of plants fascinate Carla and she enjoys translating elements of drawings into wearable jewellery. Pieces are influenced by sketches from her garden, walks in the woods and the famous Royal Botanic Gardens of Edinburgh. Carla combines playful shapes and colour to make quirky, often asymmetric necklaces, brooches and earrings. Using pattern and repetition of small resin and wire shapes within larger forms creates layers of interest. She contrasts these areas of pattern with bold simple forms of solid colour.
