Opening hours: Tues to Sat 10am to 5pm.
Trained as a traditional jeweller, Katy Luxton creates vibrant silver and nylon jewellery. She takes her inspiration from mathematical models, geometric shapes and the interwoven curves, circles and figures produced by a Spirograph toy – the moment when a line becomes a form.
Using simple but expressive lines, Katy employs hand techniques and new technology – such as 3D printing – to create tactile, playful, wearable jewellery. Experimenting with 3D printing and the possibilities of new shapes, she found a new exciting material to work with: Nylon. Each piece is dyed by hand in her studio. The choice of colours is fascinating, as is the intensity that can be achieved, and the moment when the piece is lifted from the dye bath and rinsed is always thrilling for her.
Katy designs and produces her jewellery from her home studio in Wadebridge, Cornwall
