Circa 72 Jewellery was created in 2010 and is the creative passion of Glasgow based designer and maker Kary Purvis. Kary takes inspiration from nature, her childhood surroundings and personal treasured memories to create beautiful and unique jewellery. Selecting her materials carefully, Kary works mainly in silver using accents of gold and semi precious stones. Many of the pieces include layers and movement within that create an element of surprise and interest often using hidden cold connections to achieve this effect.
Karen Smith creates quirky narrative precious metal jewellery inspired by her passion for music, the hidden stories within songs and the affect they have on us.
Karen-Ann Dicken is a jewellery designer based in Glasgow. She specialises in modern technologies such as laser welding, 3D printing, CAD and laser cutting. I also teach jewellery design at two Glasgow colleges.
I work mainly in Sterling silver together with semi-precious and lab grown faceted gemstones. My inspiration stems from the rich colours and background of Egypt, my home country. The intenseness of Lab Rubies, Amethysts and Emeralds lead themselves to bold designs that result in jewellery that makes a statement, designs that could be worn by a Queen.
Kate Pickering is a narrative jeweller with each piece being unique to the wearer.
She takes the connections people have to music and lyrics and translates them into wearable pieces of contemporary jewellery.
With particular use of silver and photo etching her work can interpret memories and using personal designs the end result is an original piece of art.
Kathy Vones creates unique, flamboyant pieces of jewellery which are inspired by the deep sea environment, using clean, simple wire structures, finely textured sheet metal and delicately patterned silicone shapes.

Kathryn Hinton's work focuses on creating jewellery and silverware using digital technology to emulate traditional tooling in the process of making.
Kathryn Williamson jewellery is inspired by a sense of personal treasure trove- found objects and fragments of pottery from beach walks around the Fife coast. The seemingly unconnected nature of the pattern has led to the reignition of an interest in a ecletic array of pattern from japanese origami to 70s coffee sets.
These elements are currently being explored in silver through rolled or punched textural surfaces, photoetching, combining this with enamel, paper / resin, laser etched and cut acrylic and found beach pebbles.
