About Sheila Fleet Jewellery
Sheila Fleet has come a long way since the jewellery designer-maker decided to open her first workshop in Orkney in 1993.
After starting out in a converted shed, Sheila now employs some 55 skilled craftspeople in a dedicated workshop and showroom, and Sheila Fleet Jewellery is one of Orkney's biggest and best-known exports.
All Sheila Fleet Jewellery is designed, made, finished and packaged at the Workshop in Orkney, Scotland. All pieces bear the maker's mark SD representing Sheila Dearness (Dearness is Sheila’s maiden name). All gold over 1 gram, palladium and platinum pieces over 0.5 grammes, and silver pieces over 7.78 grammes are independently quality tested for fineness by the Edinburgh Assay Office, and hallmarked with a metal fineness mark and the Edinburgh Assay Office’s own mark. For more information see our Guide to Metals.
Sheila's son, Martin, runs the day-to-day business operation and many of the landscape and portrait images featured throughout this website were taken by Sheila's late husband, Rick.
We are committed to nurturing talent and employ skilled craftspeople locally to make each individual piece, keeping alive traditions which have been a part of life in these islands since Neolithic times.
Sheila Fleet Jewellery has developed a reputation in Britain and around the world for distinctive design and quality. You can view Sheila's collections at her Workshop in Tankerness and Gallery in Kirkwall, Orkney. There is also a Sheila Fleet Gallery at 18 St Stephen Street, Stockbridge, Edinburgh, where you can talk to our knowledgeable staff about how the individual pieces are made. Sheila Fleet Jewellery is also available in our concessions at Jenners Department Store, Edinburgh, Jenners in Loch Lomond Shores at Loch Lomond, and in Frasers, Glasgow. Alternatively you can see our jewellery and get specialist advice at the independent stockists listed on the Stockists page.
