Meet Lottie Laversuch, the ultra talented Designer and Creative behind all the Seol + Gold graphics brightening up our day. We asked Lottie some questions on her inspiration, style and self-care...
We love how you’ve taken the Seol + Gold aesthetic and translated it into your designs, what inspires you when creating them?
Thank you! The first thing I do is note down anything that the brief reminds me of, like playing a game of word association in my head, this usually is the basis for all my designs. Then I go back to my collection of references, I’ve made myself a mini archive that’s my go to for inspiration, you can find anything in there from old match boxes to album covers.
Describe your own style.
I guess similarly to my work, my style in general is inspired by anything and everything that I think looks interesting. Shopping nearly always secondhand at charity shops, boot sales or vintage markets. It’s so satisfying when you find a gem having rummaged through it all.
Any wise words you live by?
Work hard but make time for seeing friends and having a good time. Finding a good balance is crucial.
What does a day in the life of Lottie look like?
I start my day with a good cup of coffee or two and a decent breakfast. Then I have a look at my to do list, I have a million notes on my phone which determine what I’m working on that day. One thing I do try to do is get in the sun, even just for 10 minutes.
What does jewellery mean to you?
The icing on the cake of an outfit.
Favourite Seol + Gold jewellery?
There’s so many cute pieces but I do love my enamel signet ring, it’s adorable!
Silver or Gold?
I go through phases but I’ve been drawn to silver for a while now.
It’s a hard one, but do you have a favourite graphic that you’ve made for S+G?
Ooo that is a hard one, I’ve enjoyed working on so many projects with you guys. But there is a special place for the scratch card as it’s one of the first things we worked on together and I also love the cheeky clam sticker. I also have a few new favourites that I’m excited to come out.
Do you have any go-to pieces of jewellery that you wear every day?
Day to day I wear silver hoops all round and then rings handed down from my family.
How do you make time for you - any self-care or daily rituals?
I always have music on throughout the day to keep me sane, and having a dance brings me so much happiness.
