Kirkwall Gallery, Orkney

Kirkwall Festive Event Nov 2017

Our beautiful jewellery Gallery is in the oldest part of Kirkwall.

Sheila opened her first Gallery in 1999, two years after the new Workshop was built. It's a long narrow shop split over two floors in a historic building in Kirkwall. This area of Kirkwall is where the town began. Monks are recorded here in the 7th century and later the Vikings built a chapel, known as St. Olaf's Church. The stone archway of this chapel can still be seen in the lane near our shop.

If you walk from the Harbour along Kirkwall's main shopping street to the Cathedral then you will be following the old shoreline of Kirkwall. About 1000 years ago you could have stepped from a longboat into our shop. Today we welcome guests disembarking from cruise ships at Kirkwall Pier.

On the ground floor our shop primarily showcases the full range of Sheila Fleet jewellery and rings. Upstairs you'll find a further selection of designer crafts including a wide range of the best Scottish made ceramics, knitwear, textiles, artworks. These are specialist gifts you may struggle to find anywhere else.

The Gallery has recently been refurbished and is lovely to explore. Whether you live in Orkney or have travelled far to visit us Muriel and her team will give you a warm welcome. They are all very knowledgeable and can offer assistance with trying jewellery on and sizing fingers for made to measure rings.

Kirkwall Festive Event 25 - 26 November

Join Sheila in the Kirkwall Gallery as she introduces Scottish Gold!

Sheila has been chosen as one of only two jewellers in Scotland to receive Scottish Gold from the Cononish Gold Mine in the West of Scotland. We've been busy crafting the very first rings to be mined, designed and made in Scotland and Sheila will be showing one of the new Scottish Gold rings at her Kirkwall Event.

Scottish Gold is in limited supply so do come along if you'd like to discuss a Scottish Gold ring. Appointments can also be made to discuss to Scottish Gold rings with Sheila at the Workshop during the following week.

Sheila will also be launching her new Captivate collection inspired by tiny gold granules caught in crevices in Scotland's burns. The Cononish river flowing from the mountains where the Scottish Gold is mined was the inspiration for Sheila's new design.

We're offering 10% Loyalty Discount on all Sheila's collections! Offer excludes our Charitable Daisies but includes Sheila's new designs.

Along with the Scottish Gold, new Captivate and Sheila's many other collections, Muriel, Marion and Leanne also have a wonderful selection of fabulous fashion accessories, local crafts, beautiful glassware and gifts on display for Christmas. Well worth a visit down to Bridge Street!

We look forward to seeing you at the Kirkwall Festive Event!
