LyonDaw is a jewellery brand born in Glasgow and founded in 2018.
Originally from a fine jewellery background I have been Making since 2012. In 2015 I went to The Glasgow School of Art and began experimenting with more unusual materials. In my final year at GSA I fell in love with the material jesmonite and have been experimenting with it ever since.
My work is inspired by my personal connection to Glasgow, a city I have lived in for 25 years. Glasgow is a patchwork of textures and colour and for years I have used photography to capture this aesthetic. I have applied this to my work, taking photographs that focus primarily on colour, texture and composition. Using jesmonite as my main component, I have applied these three elements to produce a body of work that is tactile, bold and visually appealing. The lightness of the material has allowed them to be created into wearable sculptures, able to move throughout the city, adding to the industrial, colourful and vibrant aesthetics that they were inspired from.
