Inspired by The Contemporary
While fascinated by Scotland's heritage, Sheila is deeply interested in new trends and technologies and creates contemporary designs as well as putting a contemporary twist on traditional forms. It's a lifelong passion, she studied Fashion as well as Jewellery at Edinburgh College of Art in the 1960s and loves the creative energy of international jewellery shows.
Cascading water in Scotland’s burns erodes rocks and stones leaving small granules caught in crevices downstream.
These stunning collections of diamond solitaire, constellation and trilogy rings are available in Gold, Palladium and Platinum set with diamonds. Other precious stones available on request.
Silver and gold wires complement each other to create a free flowing diamond set form. The Kiss collection is a romantic interpretation inspired by the natural wild grasses of the windswept northern landscape.
The inspiration for these pieces comes from Sheila's fascination with rock formations and their origin.
A contemporary collection of jewellery inspired by the matrix and structure of rock.
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.
The wonderful colours of the rainbow inspired this collection. Nature’s elements of sun and rain create a magical arc of colour in the sky. In awe of this magnificent sight, the Vikings believed rainbows to be a bridge between earth and heaven. The intense colours of the rainbow, a feature of the wide open Orkney skyline, provide a rich palate for this stunning collection.
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.
On a particularly memorable holiday, Sheila found the captivating motion of the water as she looked out to sea to have a very calming effect.
Hearts of Silver and Gold are reversible and can be worn either way, depending on which side the wearer wishes to reveal. The gold heart can be set with a diamond and the silver heart can be enamelled with passion pink.
Growing up in Orkney Scotland, the shoreline has given Sheila a life long interest in the natural forms of rocks and pebbles. Whilst at Art College in Edinburgh in the mid 1960's, she found a lapidary club to cut and polish some of the shoreline stones she had collected. The first piece of jewellery Sheila ever made was a ring set with Iona marble, which she had cut from a pebble.
Inspired by the movement, harmony and balance of music in its infinite forms and moods.
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.
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.
