Inspired by the urban surroundings of day to day city life, DeeLyn’s work is architectural and geometric at its core, She creates bold and tactile wearable structures, which can also stand alone as miniature sculptures. Often interactive or convertible, inviting the wearer to manipulate the piece to best suit them. Working primarily in sterling silver and using traditional silversmith techniques, but she also enjoys playing with alternative materials when possible - recycled guitar string, pyrite, cast resin have been included in previous work.
DeeLyn is an award winning jewellery artist based in Liverpool. Originally from America, she resettled and trained in the UK, earning a Bachelors of Design First Class with Honours in 2010, specialising metalwork/jewellery and ceramics. She has been working as a self employed studio jeweller ever since. Her workshop is based in Flux Studios, a thriving arts hub in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle, which she founded and manages. Her jewellery collections are exhibited in many top UK galleries, as well as internationally.
