Rugged yet elegant jewels inspired by the Isles of Iona and Staffa.

Lucie Hunter graduated with a degree in Jewellery and Metal Design from DJCAD in 2013, before moving her burgeoning business to the Vanilla Ink workshop — honing her collection and developing her skills to tackle the industry head-on.

Inspired by topophilia – the emotional connection to a certain place or physical environment – Lucie channels her love of the coast nto textured precious metal pieces that sing of the rugged landscapes.

The Isles of Iona and Staffa on the West Coast hold a special place in Lucie’s heart, and her designs are reflective of the basalt lava formations and effect that the relentless sea has upon Staffa’s majestic structures.
