Linda Lovatt - Beastie Brooches & Assemblages

Linda trained as an illustrator in the Welsh Borders and has worked freelance for the past twenty-two years. Coming from a family of engineers she has always enjoyed metal working of all types. This together with her love of early Folk Art and French automata inspired her to create her own range of jewellery and assemblage, which are made from soldered copper, chemical verdigris and fragments of the past.

 

Linda's large and unruly garden has proved to be a rich source of inspiration and material finds such as broken pottery for her illustrative and quirky creations.To complement the garden finds, the local antique and charity shops of the town donate their pretty chipped cups, lonely saucers and redundant keys to be turned into a Beastie Assemblage.
