Cecilia Stamp

Inspired by abstract forms from machinery, architecture and the man-made, Cecilia creates graphic and super wearable contemporary jewellery. With an eye for colour and shape, she uses various materials including enamel, resin and precious metals to make each piece by hand in her studio in Glasgow. As well as her ready-to-wear range, Cecilia takes commissions ranging from custom colour-ways to wedding bands and engagement rings.

Cecilia graduated with First Class Honours in Jewellery & Silversmithing from Edinburgh College of Art, and went on to complete an MDes in Printed Textiles from the School of Textiles & Design, Galashiels.

As well as jewellery, Cecilia is a freelance textiles and print designer.

Alison Philips

Alison set up her workshop after Graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2005, designing and creating work for Galleries and Exhibitions throughout the UK, from her workshop in Dunblane Scotland.

Inspired by botanical forms, Alison first records her ideas through sketches and drawings, before translating her designs into silver, forming feminine and delicate pieces.

Each piece of jewellery is made to order ensuring that the wearer holds something truly unique.
