The internationally renowned architect is guest curating a showcase of 21 personal highlights from this year’s Goldsmiths’ Fair, which features latest collections by 170 leading UK-based designer-makers.

I have been selected to be apart of this unique showcase running for the 2 weeks of Goldsmiths fair. The piece that has been chosen is my Short Fankle necklace with disc. Originally this piece is made in Stainless steel however I am transferring and developing my stainless steel range into precious metal especially for Goldsmiths Fair. I have been playing with elements of 18ct gold as well so the new collection is an exciting change for me. 

Below is the piece that has been chosen and is made in silver.

Goldsmiths Fair - Week Two

Goldsmiths Fair have posted an article on their blog about my inspiration in the run up to the show in October. 

Growing up on the Isle of Skye has mean t that I have always been exposed to the ever-changing shoreline. This has continuously influenced my work and still does as seen in my current collection 'Tidal surge'. With Goldsmiths approaching I am now transferring elements from my current collection into a 'Fine' range where piece will be solely made from precious metal.
