Makers Statement:

Lucie Hunter is a Scottish jeweller that explores the relationship people have with their surroundings, specifically the Scottish landscape. 'We have an innate affinity with the land we live on and have always taken pieces of it as mementos and wearing them as talismans to enforce this primal connection'.

The shoreline of Iona and the basalt columns of the majestic Isle of Staffa provided the inspiration for her origin collection 'Staffa'. Thus sparking an exploration into the power the sea has upon our landscape, a particular fascination, and especially the texturising effect it has on the rock structures it encounters. Using the medium of precious metals and gemstones in her jewellery, Lucie hopes to engage the wearer with what truly makes Scotland a fascinating place, the land itself.
