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.

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.

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.

Sea Motion

Shoreline Pebble

Shoreline Pebble

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.

Symphony Necklet

Symphony

Inspired by the movement, harmony and balance of music in its infinite forms and moods.

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.

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.
