JEWELLERY by LOUISE LOVELL
Louise Lovell finds inspiration for her jewellery from her love of gardening, the surrounding countryside, bright flower combinations and the colours we see all around in nature. Hearts are a re-occurring shape as a symbol for living things. The colours and flowers convey the elements of a garden at different times of the day and seasons.

Louise's jewellery is femine and each pice is individually designed and made so that no two pieces are the same. She uses lots of different materials, but most pices are made from knitting and sewing - often using old fabrics or re-using wools. She then combines these textiles with beads, buttons, ribbons, old pieces of jewellery and leather.
'I like the idea of giving old bits and pieces a new lease of life'. by Louise
Each piece of Louise's jewellery is a lovely artwork to wear. Time and again customers who have bought something by Louise, come back to buy more - they love wearing something individual, but all tell me they get the most lovely compliments! Something to enjoy and feel good in.
