Lucy Hutchings grew up in Suffolk, developing a natural fascination with raw materials and manipulating them into something beautiful, which led her to the University of Brighton to study materials. After graduation she became noticed very rapidly, having early success with her designs, which lead her to an opening Erickson Beamon’s prestigious London studios. Today her designs are bold and elegant, a perfect figure of show shopping statement jewellery.
Her Spring Summer 10 collection will be Lucy’s fourth, which combines past techniques with new innovative ideas. Her inspiration comes from juxtaposed areas, such as East London architecture, the beauty of geisha’s and The Wizard of Oz. The result of this is beautiful stones caged in metal boxes, and tassels hanging from lightweight chains, amongst other truly striking pieces. Lucy Hutchings jewellery only needs to be worn over plain garments to be rightly appreciated, but they would look great with other outfits too!
