Hello 2021

I thought it was time for me to introduce myself.

I’m Lynne and I began my enamelling adventure back in 1999 when, as an amateur and hobbyist, I joined the Guild of Enamellers.

I’m very fortunate that I have this beautiful and well equipped studio here in North Yorkshire. I design and make work and also teach here, introducing people to the joy of creating their own small enamels and pieces of jewellery.

Here I’m sitting at one of the benches I use for teaching and I am in the process of making some tiny colour samples of enamel on silver. I have quite a library of samples but it’s not complete and it’s always useful to make a few more for future reference.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that later this year I will be able to open as part of North Yorkshire Open Studios as I have really missed meeting people and being able to demonstrate and explain some of the processes face to face.

If you would like more information about my work or wish to discuss the purchase of something then please use the contact page. I’ll be pleased to hear from you.


Teaching again

It has been a strange and difficult year for everyone but I’m pleased to say I’m ready to start running workshops again. These will be on a one to one basis. Obviously this won’t be possible during periods of further restrictions

I will ask you to respect the health of me and my family and not book or attend a booking if you are feeling in any way unwell.

I will be running the usual selection of one day classes in enamel on either copper or silver; in art clay silver or in silver ring making. It will be great to get back into the swing of sharing and inspiring others to make and I look forward to meeting you.

Use the contact form for more information and please let me know which class you are interested in and also some dates that would be convenient to you.

A new leaf

I’m excited about this year and full of ideas for new projects. I have always loved trees and leaves so intend to explore this as themes in different aspects of my work. Tom and I both did some bowls in the autumn of 2019 using tree and leaf patterns as inspiration and I want to take this further and across more of the types of work I produce.

I love to see the signs of growth appearing this winter. It’s still too early to be Spring but daffodils are emerging through the fallen leaves of last year, reminding me of the cycle of beauty that surrounds me.


New work, new ideas for 2020

I’ve decided to try a variety of different techniques and ideas throughout the year. One of my intentions is to make a statement necklace each month although I’m already a little behind as it’s February and here’s my first one.

Reticulated silver necklace 2020/1

I began by heating and picking a number of silver discs, numerous times before overheating the surface until I was satisfied with the reactions. I had to repeat the reticulation on some of the pieces to get them to a similar state. I then prepared the reverse of each piece to enable me to solder loops on before constructing a sterling silver chain. I have three extra discs that I’ll use to make a matching ring and earrings.

Work in progress

If you’d like to try this or another jewellery making technique then please contact me. I run classes here in my studio in Hunmanby by arrangement and do have dates available. They can be single or multiple days or half day sessions over a few weeks.


Wedding ring workshops for 2020

I’m just in the process of adding new workshops here in my studio in Hunmanby for 2020. I’ve decided to offer wedding rings making workshops again. I used to do this when I lived in Glaisdale and decided it’s time to put them back on the workshop schedule this year.

There are plenty of dates available so if you’re interested please email me for more information.

It’s a private workshop so you will have my undivided attention. I will guide you through the process showing you both how to measure, saw, form, solder and polish your rings. At the end of the day you will have two beautiful rings and some wonderful memories of having made them for each other.

Email me using the contact form if you’d like more information


Artfest Holmfirth 16th & 17th November 2019

I’m nearly ready for Artfest Holmfirth 16th & 17th November. I’ve finished a few new enamelled copper bowls and now need to sort out a small collection of jewellery pieces. It’s many years since I’ve taken part in pre-Christmas shows but it looks like it will be a great weekend.
There should be something to appeal to everyone and it’s all completely handmade and unique; the best kind of gift or even a treat for yourself


This is one of the most recent, finished yesterday


Getting ready for Art& at York Racecourse

Tom and I are getting ready for Art& at York Racecourse next weekend. We will, be there with a great selection of bowls. They are all enamel on copper and vary from the subtle to vivid colours in a variety of shapes and sizes.

They will include some of our most recent bowls with designs inspired by trees.

We’re looking forward to meeting lots of visitors and explaining the processes involved in creating these unique and carefully crafted pieces https://www.artand.co.uk/our_exhibitors/glazzard-and-lundsten/


Enamelled bowls

Tom and I have been working on some new bowls over the last few days. It’s always interesting to work together on these. At one stage I really liked this first bowl but Tom thought it should have more colour. Three firings later with the addition of red, orange and yellows and neither of us liked it.! Anyway a layer of transparent flux T232 was added and it was fired again, at a much higher temperature and for longer. After that it became much more subtle and very pleasing to both of us.

It’s great having someone to collaborate with and I’m certainly more productive sharing ideas
