In the historic Scottish town of Jedburgh, Linda Lovatt lives at her old watermill near the Jed river. Whilst digging her unruly garden, she keeps finding beautiful pieces of pottery, old keys and bottles hidden in the soil like pieces of treasure. This inspired her to create a range of assemblage and jewellery for her gallery in Jedburgh, drawing on her love of folk art and French automata.
Charity shops in Jedburgh also donate their pretty chipped cups, lonely saucers and redundant keys to be turned into a quirky beastie assemblage.
Linda has also appeared on “Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas” on Channel 4 and won the Best Christmas Wreath competition with a beautiful Beastie Assemblage creation.
