Recycled jewellery by Sara Lynch
Sara Lynch is an artist who lives so far north in New York State that she is almost Canadian. She makes hybrid functional ceramic sculptures and crazy mixed-media paintings on old clothing. But it’s her new line of jewellery that I’m interested in right now.
Lynch collects lots of small lightweight things to sew onto her paintings. One day she was looking at a pair of vintage plastic lemons when she realized she had the perfect ingredients to make some fabulous jewellery. After a trip to the craft store for some basic supplies, she went to work. And her new line of jewelry was born. Her work is available in various stores in Northern New York, Portland Oregon, and, for the rest of the world, Etsy.
