British designer/maker Lucy Quinn takes inspiration from rare and beautiful buttons to create a unique collection of work, which is both nostalgic and contemporary.
Harvey & Quinn is passionate about transforming treasured finds into beautiful pieces of jewellery with an air of theatricality. “For me each button tells a story, an intriguing glimpse of a forgotten past.”
“My work always begins with one small piece of inspiration, a button and from that we create a sterling silver setting which often reflects my love of Elizabethan and Greco – Roman style.”
Based in Saffron Walden, Essex, Harvey & Quinn provide both a bespoke range of exquisite one off pieces as well as a limited addition range of work.
Lucy studied for a BA (Hons) Three Dimensional Design in Metals at Surrey Institute in Farnham, Surrey from 1991 to 95 and spent an intermediate year at the Fachhochschule, Dusseldorf, Germany between 1993 to 94.
