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 Dickson is a jewellery designer/maker based in Glasgow. She studied jewellery and silversmithing at Cardonald College and graduated in 2015 with an award for excellence. She was also shortlisted for the Incorporation of Goldsmiths 'Outstanding Student of the Year' Award.
Angela is an experimental jewellery designer challenging the traditional thought that all jewellery must be made from precious metals. She uses salt crystals, a natural product but not one usually associated with jewellery and together with resin and silver she transforms it into something that you want to wear and treasure.
Angus and Mack is a small furniture making company based on the outskirts of Edinburgh specialising in bespoke fine furniture and carpentry. Our work encompasses everything from public sculpture to children's seating. We also mill and dry all our own locally sourced hardwoods.

I make a selection of handmade jewellery, mostly one-off pieces with some limited production earrings. A variety of materials are used in my work including gold, silver, copper, slate, enamel and mother of pearl. The slate is hand cut and shaped with silver or mother of pearl inlaid into some pieces. I enamel on silver and copper using dry powder enamel. Many layers of enamel are built up in-between firings. The enamel is then rubbed back with a carborundrum stone to reveal colours and patterns underneath.
I make contemporary jewellery in predominately precious materials. My influences include japanese textiles and architecture and I use enamel, gemstones, paper, felt, porcelain and gold leaf to create contrasting colour.
