Duality, movement and illusion are central in both DeeLyn’s jewellery and ceramic designs. These themes are explored with simplicity via the arrangement of repetitive geometric components and shapes, creating sculptural pieces with a bold architectural aesthetic. RE::strung, DeeLyn’s newest jewellery collection combines her love of music with more serious concerns for the environment. The pieces are crafted from recycled guitar strings and sterling silver. The innovative use of alternative materials and mechanisms adds unique detail, whilst subtly disguising the original use as part of a musical instrument. Originally from Portland, Oregon in America, DeeLyn has resettled in the UK. She completed her design degree in Liverpool in 2010, earning a first-class degree with honours, as well as numerous awards. She was also the Designer in Residence at Liverpool Hope University in 2010–2011 and has now set up her own studio.
