Artist of the Week: Lizzy Chambers

I create British botanical jewellery and keepsakes which originated from my children picking flowers from the garden and wanting to encapsulate the moment in something beautiful to wear. I use my own collection of flowers to create one-off pieces and take my clients special items, to create their own keepsakes, to save their memories in wearable pieces.

Growing up in rural Leicestershire, I was taught by my gran how to grow flowers. Now living in London, I have taken my small plot and turned it into a flower haven where many of my pieces start from seed. Throughout the year, I pick and dry my flowers which I then arrange in glass spheres with cocktail sticks and tweezers before sealing them from the elements in either silver or gold.
