Hi, I'm Kellie, a designer, silversmith and Jeweller. I recently completed a postgrad at Bishopsland Educational Trust in Jewellery, Silversmithing and Business Management in the August 2011. Along side my postgraduate course I ran my own bespoke jewellery design business, designing and making jewellery for my client base, as well as making larger sculptural pieces, commissioned for Brittish Silver week 2011. I've been incredibly lucky in having been tutored by the likes of Malcolm Appleby, Rod Kelly, Jacqueline Mina, Angela Cork and John Bartholomew. My work is all about hand piercing!!! I use a traditional decorative technique used mainly for its aesthetic appeal and create it into a structure.

Commissions from £80 to £4,000 +. I'm very flexible and aim to make work that is affordable for any budget.

Rhiannon Macgillivray

Hey so today I thought id introduce you to my fantastic best bud Rhiannon Macgillvray.

 ladies cuff, sterling silver

Rhiannon has an intensive knowledge of traditional jewellery and silversmithing techniques.  We both studied along side each other at Duncan of Jordanstone and I learned mainly through her eagerness too learn as many hands on (hard/no bish bosh/hardcore/inyourface/) making techniques. 

Mainly Rhiannon hand pierces, raises and plays with light, through surface manipulation in various surface textures. In her own words " I have been influenced by both flowing shapes and geometric patterns that I've found in modern and ancient architecture during my travels. I see beauty in the uncomplicated and take joy in transforming silver" 

Shes no one trick pony and her talents are endless!!!
