Lisa Crockard Jewellery
Working mostly in sterling silver, gold and steel with semi-precious stones and minerals such as tourmaline, pearl, onyx and howlite, the aim is to produce elegant pieces that are either easy to wear every day, or intended to make a statement.
Lisa designs and makes each component and piece, with the 3D printed steel components being manufactured on behalf of Lisa using specialised equipment in the Netherlands.
It was using this process that Lisa won the opportunity to produce the awards given to the winners of the Scottish Album of the Year in 2017.
In 2014, following a 15-year career in fashion buying in London, Lisa Crockard made the decision to move back to Scotland to learn a new skill. After completing an HND in Jewellery in 2016, at City of Glasgow College, Lisa set up her studio to produce and create contemporary jewellery from her hometown of Paisley.
Having previously studied textile design at Glasgow School of Art, Lisa has always had a passion for design and a love of beautifully made products. The opportunity during the HND course to use a variety of modern technologies along with learning traditional silversmithing techniques means Lisa now uses 3D printing and CAD with old techniques such as the Korean practise of keum boo (which translates as ‘attached gold’), reticulation and lost-wax casting to make contemporary, elegant jewellery.
Using architecture, man-made objects and geometric patterns as her primary sources of inspiration mean that Lisa is always developing her series of designs as well as creating bespoke & custom pieces.
