“I see the world through the lens of a line from a favorite Rebecca Solnit essay, Letter to a Young Climate Activist on the First Day of the New Decade. Solnit writes ‘life wants to live.’ It’s such a simple explanation, but captures the common ground that all living things share, from single cell organisms to the complexity that is homo sapiens. It opens the door to just how miraculous life is, in all of its different forms.”
Lucy Golden has been making jewelry in the White Mountains of New Hampshire for a wonderfully long time. As an avid naturalist, she feels fortunate to be able to explore her interests in her work. Whether it is mushrooms, insects, wildflowers, or birds, she draws her inspiration from the glorious array of wildlife that thrives in our midst. She hopes that her jewelry serves as a reminder of the wonders of our natural world, as conceptualizing and making it brings this home to her.
When not in the studio, Lucy can be found foraging for mushrooms, tending to her moth- and mantis-raising projects, and tromping through the great outdoors. It is often during these times that creative ideas present themselves.
