Ellacey Design - Designer and maker of contemporary resin jewellery.
Lois Carson lived in South Australia for five years from 1988 and in Thailand from 1993. On returning to Aberdeenshire in 1997 she was awarded a BA (Hons) Fine Art, 1st class at Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen, Scotland (1999-2003) and a Master of Fine Art (2006-2007).
Lois currently works from her home studio in Aberdeenshire where she designs and makes contemporary jewellery. This line of work stems from her fine art / sculptural background where resin has been used in the creation of larger scale sculptures. She finds this material fascinating and versatile to work with and over a period of time has developed and refined the working process to suit the smaller scale creations which Lois views as small scale sculptures or wearable art.
Influences are drawn from a variety of sources including the making process itself. Inspiration for colour combinations are often found in the landscape and as close to home as the garden. Other sources of inspiration come while working on commissions, buttons, clasps, toggles and brooches have been made from resin specifically cast by selecting colours from the clients chosen fabrics to create bespoke finishings for the one off garment.
