Grace Girvan

Collecting and studying objects from Scotland’s shorelines is the starting point in my creative process. The collected objects inform the colour, texture and composition in my jewellery and the objects themselves are often incorporated into my pieces.  Pebbles and driftwood are combined with silver and enamel to creative beautiful, distinctive jewellery.  By employing a restrained colour palette of soft greys, blues and greens, I aim to convey a sense of calm, which I associate with the sea and shore. 

I was born and raised on the Orkney Islands and now live and work on the coast in Fife
