Our Featured Trunk Show

Open Trunk Show At Wave Gallery for a Limited Time!

– do not miss this show only here for a few days –

I fell in love with jewelry when I was young, rummaging through my grandmother’s bureau drawers, enchanted by her treasure trove of costume jewelry that she kept in a jumble of tiny boxes, each with its own story. Since my childhood in the woods and on the beaches of Connecticut, I have accumulated and “curated” my collections of objects, found and acquired, assembling them in patterns and groupings that often inspire my jewelry designs. I think of these pebbles, shells, rusted metal fragments and art objects as an archive of personal memories.

While working on the Navajo Reservation during college, I was captured by the wide open western landscapes and met my first silversmiths, who inspired me to learn to make my own jewelry. I moved from Connecticut to Colorado, where I got my BFA at the University of Colorado, and decided if nothing else, a traditional career wasn’t for me. I eventually relocated to a farm in Nebraska, then to Lincoln, where I now live. I have an airy, sun-filled studio where I work with three bench assistants and my husband, Craig Roper, who manages the business end of our operations.

Using a wide range of gemstones chosen for their color, shape and texture, I’m able to exercise my love of color in my one of a kind designs. My jewelry is intended to be wearable and comfortable. The Designer Line, especially, can be worn with a T-shirt and jeans or transition to a dressy night on the town.

Juried and invitational shows have included The American Craft Council shows, The Atlanta Contemporary Jewelry Show, Smithsonian Craft Show and Craft2Wear, the Philadelphia Museum Craft Show, CraftBoston, SOFA, as well as select gallery exhibitions. Sydney Lynch Jewelry has appeared in a variety of publications including Lark Books 500 Pendants, Lark Books 500 Gemstone Jewels, Lark Books Jewelry Design Challenge, Art Jewelry Today 2, Art Jewelry Magazine, Jewelry Art Magazine, Ornament Magazine and American Craft Magazine.
