Deeply influenced by the palette of natural landscapes, Ms. Lythgoe uses a wide variety of media to create her one-of-a-kind jewellery. With a technique that has evolved over the course of the past 5 years, she uses either polymer clay or epoxy resin as a substrate. When polymer clay is used as a design element, it is impressed with a variety of texture mats. This is followed by an overlay of aluminum, gold, silver, and copper foil which is tinted with alcohol inks - the colour-saturated translucent inks allowing for the reflective surface of the foils to shine through. The pieces are then finished with numerous layers of clear epoxy resin, permanently sealing the more fragile elements from damage. The end result is jewelry that is unique in its construction, often resulting in happy surprises from the combination and layers of media used. Ms. Lythgoe draws on her experience as a graphic designer and colourist to create striking designs in rich, vibrant hues which appeal to those wishing to make a statement with their personal style choices.
