Having worked with Sheila Fleet Jewellery for over thirteen years it’s with heavy hearts that we have to say goodbye to May, our Kirkwall store manager, as she retires this Christmas Eve.

May has been such a valuable employee a great leader for our Kirkwall team.

Here’s what May had to say about her time with the company:

Kirkwall team

“I’ve worked for Sheila Fleet Jewellery for thirteen years now and though I’ve had other wonderful jobs in my time nothing has been as nice as this.

“I absolutely couldn’t choose a favourite aspect of the job as I’ve loved it all; I’m really very lucky and Sheila, Rick and Martin have been a joy to work for these past thirteen years.

“If I had to choose one aspect of the job that I will miss the most it’s the girls in the shop and the customers that I’ve come to know so well over the past years.

“A lot of our customers are friends now but I’ll still be around, I’m not going to disappear off the face of the earth!


“Saying that, my husband and I are planning on driving off into the sunset in our motor home; we don’t know where we’re going to go but we won’t stay away for too long because we’ve got some lovely grandchildren to spend time with back home! 

“I love all of the pieces that Sheila designs but my favourite has to be the Shoreline Pebble collection.

“I like the feel and look of the whole collection and it’s a lovely design; my definite favourite from thirteen years!

“After all this time I know that I won’t be able to stay away from the company, I’d miss it too much!

“So I’ll be on hand to help Sheila out if and when she needs me.”

We’re very sad to be losing May but we’re all excited to receive postcards from her travels and hear about her trips when she comes home.

We wish you a wonderful retirement May but we’ll miss you lots!
