About me

My fascination with jewellery started during childhood, as I avidly collected and threaded beads onto cotton. Upon earning a BA in Design from Birmingham University, I dedicated myself to nurturing my passion for crafting and sculpting metals.

Frequent visits to The Isle of Skye during holidays kindled my desire to have my own shop and retail locally crafted arts and crafts. In 2004, my husband and I relocated to Skye, where I underwent apprenticeship training at Skye Jewellery, honing my skills as a goldsmith.

In 2014, I opened "lapwing Designs" in Broadford on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, retailing my handcrafted Silver and gold jewellery alongside pieces crafted by other regional artisans.

 

However, eighteen months later, owing to my husband's professional commitments, I found myself settled in Dunoon on Scotland's west coast. Here, I operate from home, ceaselessly conceiving fresh new jewellery designs. 

Many inquire about my move to Scotland. The explanation is straightforward: my inspiration stems from the picturesque landscapes, as well as the flora and fauna of Scotland.

I derive immense joy from translating imaginative designs into silver & gold metalwork. Often, individuals struggle to find precisely what they envision. Allow me to assist by tailoring pieces to your specifications - I specialise in crafting bespoke jewellery items, ensuring each creation is unique. Many of my designs stand as singular pieces, either due to the distinctiveness of a gemstone or my belief in their exclusivity, denoted by "One-Off" in the description. Additionally, there are numerous stock pieces, each meticulously handcrafted in sterling silver, 9ct or 18ct gold. I also offer an alteration and repair service as often our hands change with age, rings are too tight or loose. Chain's break and sometimes they just need a good clean.
