I am a Scottish designer/maker who graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with a First Class Honours degree in Jewellery and then went on to complete a Postgraduate diploma in the same department. Currently based in Bristol I work from Centrespace studios creating jewellery in precious metals and enamel.

Having grown up in Edinburgh my work is inspired by the east coastline of Scotland and the villages that dot the coast. I find these places fascinating to draw as well as visit and it is my drawings that I try to translate into jewellery, whether it is the drawn line or bright colours of inks. Detail is an important part of many of my pieces as I love to draw the immense detail that can be in found in what looks at first glance to be an ordinary scene.

Whatever I do I aim to keep my work honest, spontaneous and engaging. My work has been sold in exhibitions and shows across the uk and commissions are welcome.Zoë signature
