Lydia Swann is a Bristol based artist, who has a unique use for colouring pencils. 

Lydia collects pencils which are discarded from pencil factories and transforms them into wearable art. Her creations include earrings, pendants, brooches, keyring and coasters in all the colours of the rainbow. Lydia loves geometric designs and the endless possibilities of ways to upcycle pencils using many traditional wood working techniques. She is passionate about saving waste from landfill and giving familiar items a new lease of life.
