Born in 1946, Malcolm Appleby is considered to be one of the most original and highly skilled craftsmen working in Britain today. Known primarily as an engraver, he has been commissioned on many occasions by private companies, public bodies and individuals to produce wonderful pieces of silverware or jewellery.
I create decorative and functional objects for the home and business environment, including lightboxes and innovative furniture. I enjoy reusing discarded objects and experimenting with textures and unusual combinations of materials. By-products range from brooches and cards to paintings, drawings and monoprints.

Marianne Anderson is a jewellery designer/maker based in Glasgow. Her jewellery is characterised by the refined palette of oxidised silver, 18ct yellow gold, red garnets and white pearls that she uses. Inspired by traditional decorative forms Marianne creates contemporary, luxurious and wearable collections.
Marion creates contemporary fashion jewellery from anodised aluminium. The combination of printing and colouring techniques, with fascination for pattern allows her to produce a series of innovative designs. Bold and delicate colours, intricate patterns and textures all fuse to produce a variety of exciting and wearable pieces. Through layering, the lightweight qualities of the metal can be exploited, allowing the pieces to vary greatly in scale. Marion’s desire is to make stylish fashionable jewellery, which links traditional ideas and ornamental-style patterns with bright colours. The pieces are ornate with semi-precious stones, pearls and repetition.
With a selection of old worn hammers I strike a mixture of surfaces onto my tableware. I like the idea of making work look and feel non precious. With each hammer blow I texture the surface making it rough or very subtle. Used with smooth polished edges and touches of gold my aim is to encourage the owner to take their time to feel, explore and enjoy the piece.
I am a fifth generation gold/silversmith who specialises in the exploration of work through the development of technique, spatial form and ritual environment.
I design and make unique folding chairs, tables and other pieces of furniture for interior use. My work is both contemporary and functional and I generally work in wood although I do introduce other materials such as metal and glass where appropriate.
