Inspired by The Sky
Like a Nature's own huge cinema the sky entertains with constantly changing light and natural phenomena. Bright rainbows in Spring, rare blue moons and the acrobatic flight of swallows in Summer have all inspired Sheila to create beautiful and unique collections.
Bird silhouette forms in our skies above inspired this collection of beautiful flight jewellery, as Orkney is renowned for its breeding bird colonies with their arching wings cutting across the horizon. This collection captures the grace and simplicity of birds in flight, silhouetted against the sky, the birds cast shadows as they pass over.
This collection is inspired by the Moon’s soft reflection across the sea which is a mystical staircase to the stars. In silver, a moonstone is used to represent the moon with layers of silver and enamel. In 9ct Gold, a solid opal is set to represent the Moon and the gold is laced with small diamonds.
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.
Swallows are one of the first signs of summer when they return in April after their long migration from South Africa. They grace our skies with their breathtaking speed and acrobatic performance.
