Since 1981, jewelry artist Sydney Lynch has been designing and making her handmade jewelry featuring a variety of gemstones set in high karat gold and silver.
"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.”
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.
