Lichen & Leaf is a multi-disciplinary studio based in Cape Town, South Africa. All items are hand crafted by Cynthia Edwards alongside an outsourced team of talented artisans and craftspeople. Initially specialising in block-printed fabrics, a new focus has been found in jewellery - specifically hand crafted polymer clay statement earrings. This new departure began with a love for the tactile nature of clay and Cynthia's recent experiments with ceramics.
Originally a Fine Art graduate, she has since been drawn to the world of crafts and making due to an underlying passion for skill-based process. Resultantly she maintains a flexibility in her career as a creative by exploring the avenues that are of interest to her over time.
