Handcrafted bespoke jewellery using the finest gemstones and freshwater pearls.
Taking a romantic view of the sea and the life that surrounds and works it. Gilly explores its colour, material and form.
Absorbing herself in iconic references to seafaring folk, she exaggerates the nautical traditions, combining hard and soft materials to emphasize the strength and struggle of a way of life. Using the harshness of the cold metal against the warmth of the hand dyed flexible elastic. The same elastic local Plockton fishermen draw on in their creels.
The changing colour palette of the Highlands echoes her view of the heather blanket hills and continual shift in light reflected in the sea and lochs.
Gilly challenges the properties of control and resilience with minimal aesthetics, creating dramatic pieces of beauty, strength and texture.
GLASSTORM has been recently been established by the creative duo Brodie Nairn & Nichola Burns. Both have firmly established themselves within the glass art scene in The Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and The Netherlands. Returning back to Scotland they have put their new Tain based glass studio on the map by creating works in glass that reach the foremost in contemporary glass design and elegance. The studio workshop is not a demonstration studio and glassblowing is not guaranteed but visitors are welcome to view the creative glassblowing process when it is taking place or by arrangement prior to visit.

I studied jewellery in Glasgow, Toronto and then graduated from Dundee with an Hons Degree in Jewellery and Metalwork. I make contemporary jewellery in gold and silver and a combination of both. Many of the pieces are one-offs or a few similar pieces made at the same time. I want to keep the pieces unique and the owner happy to have something different) Texture is predominant in my work contrasted with smooth, polished surfaces. Inspiration comes from Africa and the Scottish Highlands. I have my own small Gallery overlooking Inverness Castle, off Castle Street (one flight up Raining's Stairs) adjacent to my studio.
