Classic Favourites

From classic collections like Pentland to iconic favourites like Creel, we have gathered some of Sheila's most enduringly popular jewellery and rings together here. Many interpret themes close to Sheila's heart and each has a story of its own. Every piece is made to order specially for you.

Creel

Creel

Sheila has created a variety of Creel cage designs available in silver with enamel and gold. The random enamel sections represent the trapped water inside the creel as it is pulled from the sea, some of these designs also have a small shell caught inside.

Tidal Treasures

Tidal Treasures

The strong tides of the Pentland Firth guard many natural treasures. Fishermen occasionally discover some of these treasures when they haul in their creels and come across the elusive Groatie Buckie (Arctic Cowrie Shell). These tiny magical shells are said to bring good luck to the keeper and can be found on the beaches of Caithness, Orkney and Shetland by combing the shoreline.

River Ripples

River Ripples

These elegant free flowing designs were inspired by the natural ripples that can be found on sand after water has passed over it. They cast delicate shadows against the golden sheen of the beach, shimmering in the light.

Morning Dew

Morning Dew

This collection of silver and gold jewellery, laced with handset stones reflects a magical natural phenomenon. As dawn breaks, dew drops glisten on wild grasses like jewels in the morning light.

Wild Grasses

Wild Grasses

Sheila’s original designs are hand enamelled on layers of silver and gold wires. Delicate free flowing gem set forms reflect the natural wild grasses of the windswept northern landscape in Caithness and the Orkney Islands.

Rowan

Rowan

In Scottish lore, the Rowan tree has been held as a ‘Tree of Life’, a protector from harm. The familiar silhouette of the tree itself is an expression of strength, endurance and hope, with the berries symbolising life and renewal. Throughout history, many cultures of the world have venerated trees, believing them to have divine and magical powers.

Snowdrop

Snowdrop

Walking through the woodland at Forss in Caithness, the dense carpet of delicate winter Snowdrops gave Sheila the inspiration to design this floral collection.

Daisies For Emily

Daisies at Dawn

These delicate silver daisies with sunshine centres raise funds for the Orkney Charitable Trust supporting Orkney youngsters in need.

Ogham

Ogham

The ancient Ogham script reads 'A Blessing on the Soul'.

Skyran

Skyran

Skyran was inspired by the first known text discovered in Orkney. The Ogham writing that reads ‘a blessing on the soul’ was found on a whorl stone at Buckquoy, Birsay, approximately 500 AD. These signature pieces capture the rich blue-grey of the night sky, where Skyran translates as to glitter or shine brightly.

Flagstone

Flagstone

This collection was born from my love of the sensational natural rock shorelines that once linked Orkney and Caithness. The Caithness flagstone is composed of fine grained sand and mud deposited in Lake Orcadie about 380 million years ago in the Devonian age.

Pentland Thumb.jpg

Pentland

The Pentland collection gets its name from the notorious stretch of water which separates the Orkney Islands from the north coast of the British Mainland. The water surges through this narrow strait between the Atlantic and the North Sea, where it has inspired Sheila to create this collection full of colour and movement.

Reef Knot

Reef Knot

The Reef Knot takes its name and design from one of the best known and popular knots, commonly popular with generations of sailors. With a single tug of the hand, the knot is released, allowing the sail to fill once again. The simple symmetry and grace of the knot is transformed into this elegant collection.

Tidal

Tidal

This design was inspired by the ever moving motion of the tides in the Pentland Firth between Orkney and Caithness. Flowing interlocking filaments in silver and gold echo the strength and timeless motion of the tide.
