A Conversation with Erica of Kingsway

 Erica is the designer and maker behind Kingsway - where she creates simple, minimalist jewellery with strong geometric and organic shape influences and featuring sterling silver, brass and more.  Here, she offers a glimpse into her creative world...

Who is Kingsway?  

Erica Lyons

What’s your “handmade groove?” 

I love listening to music or having a trashy tv show on whilst I’m making jewellery.

What’s on your bedside table right now? (hey, no tidying up or censoring) 

three pairs of glasses, various pieces of jewellery and a hunk of pounamu

Who are your creative role models? What music, books, images, poetry spark your creative fire? 

Geometry, sleek lines and organic shapes that I see in my day to day life

If you could go to three free workshops/creative events this year which ones would they be? What are they about? 

Social media and marketing, web development and selling at markets

How do you balance your creative life with your family, life commitments? 

With difficulty!! Luckily it’s just me and my husband but I don’t have a specific space for my jewellery making so setting up/packing it away is the bane of my life!

Kitchen table or studio? 

Currently kitchen table – dreaming of a studio!!

Do you have a wish list? Can you tell us what’s on it? 

Time, tools and space
