Harvey and Quinn
Harvey and Quinn: Accessories and Jewellery
Lucy Quinn trained as a jewellery designer and maker and creates ranges of contemporary jewellery using precious metals.
Rachel Harvey is a professional actress who once stopped her grandmother throwing out a big box of vintage buttons. Seeing them as lovely things and far too pretty to be thrown out she took the box and put them in the loft of her house thinking that one day she could do something special with them…
When Rachel and Lucy met up and started talking they very quickly discovered a common interest in transforming the commonplace into something extraordinary and taking the style of the past and giving it a modern twist. If only they had a big box of buttons…
Oh, hang on.
Rachel and Lucy scour the country sourcing beautiful buttons that are lying in forgotten corners and highlighting the fine details of their design with gold leaf and Japanese washi paper. They then find the best combinations of shape and colour to create unique earrings, brooches and rings for people who appreciate the unusual and the beautiful.
