Lynda Metcalfe began her interest in ‘metal stuff’ assisting her father in the repair and maintenance of her cars & motorcycles as a teenager and progressed to her undergraduate degree in 3D Design Specialising in Metals from the then West Surrey College of Art & Design in England (now part of the Surrey Institute). The course offers a broad based design and making education in hand-crafted metal objects at various scales (jewelry to architectural ironwork) and using a variety of processes & methods (fabrication/sand casting/machined work).

 

After graduating Lynda spent most of her creative time working on forged steel projects and turned to working at a smaller scale after assisting a Mokume Gane workshop run by Bob Coogan at Appalachian Center for Crafts in 2001.  It sparked a keen interest and became the focus of jewelry explorations.  Lynda currently splits her time between making ironwork to commission and jewelry that is carried at local galleries.
