Gold filled wires and sterling silver wires are held in place with other wires and bound around semi precious stones e.g. fluorite, rose quartz and tigers eyes to make attractive pendants. I also use swarovski crystals and pearls in the bracelets. There is no soldering in the creating of these pieces of jewellery.
Handbuilt forms including bowls, vases, sculpture in reduction fired stoneware.
Digby Morrow is a craftsman who makes fine decorative hardwood boxes and bespoke furniture pieces in his workshop on the outskirts of Linlithgow, near Edinburgh, Scotland. Also he makes highly individual pieces to be used as unique ”room features”. He works in solid and veneered woods of both domestic and exotic varieties and uses inlays and marquetry to decorate his pieces. He finishes his work using a variety of techniques including French polishing.
Digby’s boxes can have many uses - jewellery, christening, birthdays, dressing, collection, games, keepsake, presentation, special anniversaries etc. Digby's furniture pieces are designed to be "one-offs" with unique features.

MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THESE - At DialEmma Designs, artist Emma Fellowes is creating the most exquisite personalised silk-painted heirlooms of the future. The paintings depict all manner of events, from a stork announcing baby’s date of birth and weight, to a church bell entwined with rings and ribbons to commemorate a wedding day. It is YOUR commission, YOUR work of art.
My contemporary jewellery designs are all inspired by my photographic images of light with the theme of movement, fragility and protection. I use fine wire and metallic threads to represent the spontaneous lines and the detail involved in each light photograph. I think my photographs and jewellery reflect and capture the excitement and energy associated with city nightlife where you are surrounded by the darkness of night yet observe many forms of light and colour consciously or subconsciously.
Emma McDermott’s work is inspired by birds and their habitats. The damage caused by the jewellery industry to their environments, encouraged her to use all recycled or natural materials in her work.
Nothing can be more satisfying than creating a work of art from a piece of wood, it can be very therapeutic and rewarding. It is also nice to have a challenge, when asked to create something to a customers specification. The items I have created vary from Wooden Pens to Salt and Pepper sets.
I try to use native woods from Scotland such as Oak,Sycamore, Beech, and again if requested
will use other types.
