About

Believe that dreams come true everyday. Because they do.

Dreaming.

Little girls grow up, but the dreams remain the same. “Something with art and fashion”, that was my answer to the question "What do you want to be when you’ll grow up?" After several years at the art school, I wanted to continue my higher studies in a Fashion School. I passed my entrance exam at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent (KASK/School of Arts), where I studied for two years, to finally choose a profession with more certainty. So I became an art teacher. Teaching is great, because I learn kids how to draw and be creative. And it gives me time to create jewelry after my fulltime job.



My first label.

I was always dreaming about an own fashion label. In 2007, F. Buyle, my clothingline, came to life. The idea to create jewelry, came after a friend asked me to make a brooch that matched the weddingdress I made for her. In the same period, I followed the ceramic class at the artschool. I didn’t really like it, but I loved the clay-technique. One thing leads to another and so began my love for creating Fine Silver jewelry.



Origin of Lucy & June.

‘Lucy & June’ was born.
I had a long search to find a good name for my jewelry label. I started looking for female names.
Because my jewelry is mainly made for woman.
Because I’m a woman.
Because woman are strong.

Lucy was a little lady of 1m15 and 28kg. She is the oldest, most complete and best preserved fossil that was found of a bipedal ancestor of the human. But Lucy was also the first black woman who got it done to study at the University and get a degree. Lucy is also omnipresent in the music: ‘Lucie’ from Pascal Obispo or ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ from The Beatles.

June, because it means the start of summer, my favorite season. But especially to honor June Carter Cash, Johnny Cash’s wife. I love Country Music, I love America and I love the Fifties even more!

As for my logo, the drawings are alchemy symbols (except for the diamond one). The triangle represents water (my favorite element), the moon represents Silver and the sun stands for Gold.



From inspiration to jewel.

I get inspired from music, art, fashion, rockabilly, oldtimers and also from nature. Especially the sea and sand get the best out of me.

I like to combine different materials with silver, including semi-precious stones and leather. My jewels are unique and authentic, thanks to the organic and geometric shapes and textures I like to use.


So, that was a little bit of me. Feel free to ask questions.

See you soon. Enjoy the jewelry. And enjoy life!
