Lindsey graduated from Middlesex University in 2002 with a Bachelors degree in experimental jewellery. Since graduating Lindsey has been teaching jewellery making both privately and within institutions including University for the Creative Arts: Farnham, Middlesex University and Plymouth School of Art.
Lindsey established her own jewellery studio soon after graduating, with a dedicated space in which to research, develop techniques in anodising and colouring aluminium. She then went on to write a book about her specialism, commissioned by A&C Black Publishing and published in 2010.
She states: ‘Drawing inspiration from themes of collecting memories I create playful jewellery which might explore a fleeting moment, a chance encounter or a material souvenir charged with meaning. Referencing shape, form, colour and pattern to realise each piece of jewellery I hope to create something which has both familiar and yet foreign associations, perhaps triggering a vague memory for the viewer and hopefully raising a smile!’
Working from her studio, Lindsey constructs jewellery using hand-printed anodised aluminium, precious and non-precious metals and a host of found and formed materials. She uses low-tech hand processes to create her work including screen and block printing onto anodised aluminium and traditional metalwork techniques.
Lindsey sells her jewellery internationally, through exhibitions, galleries and shops. Her work is held in private and public collections and has been featured in various books, journals and magazines including Lark’s distinctive ‘500’ jewellery series and A&C Black’s ‘Design & Make’ series.
