Lesley Strickland

Lesley is a British jeweller specialising in the use of cellulose acetate (derived from cotton oil) combined with sterling silver. The acetate can be layered into a wide range of patterns and can be manipulated into far more fluid forms than other forms of plastics. Lesley's passion for designing and making jewellery started in 1976 at The City Literary Institute, London, England. Since then she has continued to evolve and develop her personal style. Her inspiration comes from weathered, natural forms and sculptors of the 1950's.

For more than thirty five years Lesley has developed many new manufacturing techniques, either by modifying existing hand or industrial processes or by inventing them. To achieve her goals she has developed special methods of forming, polishing and matting the acetate. The basic methods used are hand scraping, filing and sanding followed by heat forming and polishing or matting techniques. Small batch quantities of each design are made and each piece is individually hand crafted to a fine finish.
