Her main motivation is creating things that people will cherish from things that would have otherwise ended up in the bin. Broken china, offcuts of wood, falling apart books and scraps of paper. Because of this, you will notice a very 40s/50s feel in her work which we totally fall for !
How is a necklace made?
In her workshop, there’s a fretsaw, for cutting shapes from sheets of plywood, and a paper cutter that turns Lucie’s Photoshop designs of leaves, dots and geometric shapes into perfect cutouts. She paints these in coloured emulsion, before laminating them onto a plywood shape, finishing with varnish. The monochrome necklace is an absolute favourite and truly 50s inspired!
