Lynne Speake

I create wonderfully inventive, colourful, unique and sparkly up-cycled jewellery (wearable art) from broken jewellery, childhood memorabilia, things left in drawers or even thrown away (I also steal things from my dogs). Originally a painter, I came to Cornwall to complete a MA and through this I started to make work with an eco conscience. As part of my Art practice I also run regular community workshops where I teach how to transform almost anything into something amazing, special and totally unique.
