Designed by Frances - Frances works mainly in Sterling Silver and many pieces are enhanced by the use of colourful semi-precious gemstones, beads, freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals and Miyuki glass seed beads.

I trained as a sculptor and art historian and lectured at Edinburgh College of Art for 25 years. I now make sculptural jewellery, specialising in unique statement pieces.
I like bold one-off pieces, usually integrating handcrafted sterling silver and/ or gold with unusual semi-precious stones, precious gemstones or pearls. Using contemporary and traditional techniques, I play with themes taken from fine art, art history and poetry. A recent collaboration with a Shetland poet encouraged me to return to sea-related pieces.
