Creative Student of the Year at the Creative Fife Awards 2008, contemporary jewellery designer Angela Boag studied Jewellery Design and Silversmithing at Carnegie College, she designs and hand-makes all her jewellery from silver or gold and semi precious stones. Her pieces are unique items inspired by smooth aesthetically pleasing lines and shapes that are then created into tactile and elegant jewellery.
Angela's plan is to keep developing ideas and to create an eclectic range of home and tableware that is fun, attractive and nostalgic.

I produce handmade earthenware ceramics including functional and decorative tableware as well as ceramic jewellery with detailed leather and knot work.

Every piece is carefully considered and individually crafted.
