Hailey Lynn is an artist at heart. She has been making her whole life, exploring through paint, pencil and now metal + stone. She first heard of pewter in a 2009 sculpture course where she learned the ancient process of cuttlefish bone casting. Hailey was mesmerized, there was a lightbulb moment and she made her first piece of pewter jewelry. After years of letting the process linger in the back of her mind she finally started researching and buying supplies like crazy. Through trial, error and general ‘mad scientist’ style experimentation she has honed a unique casting process that allows her to make the pieces you see here.
The juxtaposition of raw stones, silky pewter and sandy textures make each piece look as if it’s been pulled straight from the earth. Inspired by nature, travel and the small details of every day encounters you can often find Hailey traveling in her little RV, exploring with a macro lens after it rains or sketching new designs in her notebook. All pieces are cast, finished and made by hand in Hailey’s traveling studio.
Do whatever brings you to life, then.
Follow your own fascinations, obsessions, and compulsions. Trust them.
Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart.”
