Carla Edwards designs and makes contemporary resin jewellery from her workshop in Leith, Edinburgh.
Colourful resin is set in layers with gold leaf, aluminium leaf and oxidised silver wire to create bold simple forms.
Inspiration from nature and a love of pattern result in playful resin shapes which are combined with silver and other materials to make quirky, contemporary necklaces, brooches and other pieces.
Alongside the design and production of limited edition collections, Carla also makes one off pieces and undertakes commissions.
I'm a designer and crafter of unique, funky plastic jewellery - colourful brooches and necklaces made with plastic and acrylic.
I often use vintage parts and materials and love to use and recycle pieces - taking them out of their context and giving them a new lease of life.
Cheap and cheerful pieces perfect for you to stand out!
Caroline works mainly in silver, incorporating enamel and stones. Inspired by her natural surroundings, she explores textures, patterns, colour and form in her work.
My jewellery is inspired by a fascination with optical illusion and how the eye can be deceived. I achieve this by creating pieces which explore the bold, bright colours and shapes of the Op Art movement and how this translated into fashion at the time.

Catherine Sinclair is a textile artist based in Edinburgh. Her work has a narrative quality inspired by holiday memories and the special items that people like to collect. She explains, “I’m fascinated by people’s relationship with the objects they intentionally collect such as stamps, feathers, football stickers and autographs and the pleasure gained from having those items safely stored or displayed.”

Catriona makes contemporary silversmithing and jewellery using mainly silver and often incorporates gold details. Her work is delicate in style with subtle tones of a floral influence. Plant forms and structure have been the inspiration for her work. She uses traditional techniques such as scoring and folding, hand raising, forging, hammered textures and kumbo which is a process for applying gold foil to the surface of silver.
