Graham Stewart, designer gold and silversmith has been running his workshop and gallery in Dunblane since 1978. He and his small team of highly skilled craftsmen produce the hand wrought silver using traditional techniques. His designs are clean-lined, innovative and sculptural and his range includes high profile presentation pieces to fine quality functional silverware such as candlesticks, jugs, spoons, tumbler cups, bowls, quaichs, etc. He also produces a range of fine gold and silver jewellery. Graham made the "Three Honours " sculpture for the Scottish Parliament which was presented by Her Majesty the Queen at the opening of Holyrood.
The found objects I use in my work are, in the main, the inspiration for my work.
These objects, mainly vintage, become the narrative form for my jewellery and are collaged and collaged together by arrangement and rearrangement until all the objects connect with each other in order to create lively colourful stories in the form of necklaces, earrings, bracelets and brooches which can be displayed on the wall as well as worn.
There are beautiful things being made all over the uk and our aim is to source them for you. We showcase gorgeous work from artists we admire, handmade not manufactured.

Inspired by archaeology and photography, Hannah Grace Ryan's work focuses on marrying historic stories with beautiful compositions through the ancient jewellery technique of granulation.
Taking cues from Victorian sentimentality, a childhood fascination with concealment, and 18th & 19th century furniture, my work creates opportunity for personal narratives to blossom. It is the small details that make jewellery exceptional and so my work is carefully considered and constructed, striving to deliver beautiful miniature pieces of ornamentation for the body.
A graduate of The Royal College of Art (2004), and Glasgow School of Art (2000), Hannah has exhibited her jewellery internationally.
