Do you want to help us make our designs in sterling silver?

Hello,We are jewelry designers with the desire to re create our existing designs in sterling silver. We have exclusive copyrights of our designs and we need to commission mold, casting, finishing and also developing the new collections. It does not have to be done all in one place and we are open to work with studios outside of Calgary. Please let me know if we could help each other :DThank you so muchLorenaSee More

About the Artist

A Canadian artist, Lydia Buxton uses traditional goldsmithing and enamelling techniques paired with alternative material to create compelling contemporary jewellery. Her focus on form and texture create sculptural works that are home both adorning a body, or filling a gallery space.

In 2013, Lydia graduated from NSCAD University in Halifax, NS, where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in Jewellery Design and Metalsmithing. In the summer of 2013 she was awarded first place in the 10th Annual National Student Jewellery Competition held at L.A. Pai Gallery in Ottawa, Ontario. She is a recipient of an Arts Nova Scotia Creation Grant, which has graciously funded her current body of work, ‘The Gardens We Carry’. This show opened summer 2014 and is presently for sale at LA PAI Gallery in Ottawa, ON.

"My designs are a response to the contours and colors of my inspiration. I seek to capture visual fragments of memory through various means of metal, color and form. I challenge myself, hoping to kindle the same internal connection with the wearer. I delight in the essence of this work, all of these hand-tasks propelled by my efforts into lively wearable objects.”
