Lynn Adams

Champleve Pendant - Blue Stars on Multi Background, Jewelry

Lynn Adams moved to Lyme, NH from London, England in 2002, soon after leaving a business career and earning a Higher National Diploma (a UK degree-level technical qualification) in Silversmithing, Jewellery and Allied Crafts. This training spanned aspects of jewelry-making: manufacturing silver boxes, raising beakers, hand fabricating settings for gemstones. Her interest settled on enameling and this she has made her focus and passion. She juried into the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen in the Spring of 2003 and has shown her work widely through the NH Craftsmen galleries and also the Epoch Gallery in Manchester, VT and the Collective Gallery in Woodstock, VT.

Lynn writes: “I love the materials I use, sterling silver and European enamels with their fine range of colors. I currently work in a style I call soufflé.  Heat and the elements in the metal (there is copper in sterling silver) and the enamels allow me to explore the deep nature of and variety hidden within the materials. My inspiration is the materials themselves, but I also call on the beauty of the woods and mountains around us for their dept and range of colour and texture. Much of my work I term champlevé, I also pursue a plique-a-jour style where the transparent enamels form a window in the silver. This I find one of the most beautiful of the traditional styles of enameling.”

Lynn is also pleased to also be exhibiting at the gallery watercolor paintings, results of a recent interest in reaching beyond enameling in her play with shape and color. These paintings reflect her strong sense of pattern so evident in her jewelry.
