Amy Lawrence is a knitted accessories designer based in Lancashire; her etsy store and online shop are stocked with brightly coloured and exquisitely detailed pieces are hand-made on her Italian knit machine.
The materials she uses are all of the finest quality, from Italy and the UK, which are offset with antique brass findings, for a contemporary, but textural feel. This is grown up knitting at its best, as I often find the same old knitted wire accessories quite samey, Lawrence’s pieces show clearly her excellent skills and innovative thinking.
This double layered piece is my favourite, I’m very tempted to add it to my collection 😀
She shows off her background in textile design, and it clearly inspires her technique driven work. Lawrence has worked at Julien McDonald, John Varvatos and Calvin Klein, before starting her own business, which marries her skill in swatch design (for which she was originally talent spotted in Nottingham) and colourwork. Beautiful!
