When I travel to Scotland I’m always struck by the amount of creative talent they have there, particularly when it comes to jewellery and handmade fashion accessories. Orkney designer Sheila Fleet is one such talent that I’d like to share with you. Shelia’s jewellery is inspired by the ruggedly beautiful landscape of the remote Scottish islands and you can see how the painterly use of gemstones and enamels in her creations capture the mood of seascapes, the sky and light reflecting on water. Her textured use of metal makes me think of rocks and peaks while smooth curves remind me of the motion of the sea. I think her designs are a great balance between paying homage to the natural world and harmonious abstract design. I especially like her rings which are inspired by lava flow between rocks which feature an undulating red stripe or waves meeting the shore which have a blue green middle section. Sheila’s jewellery designs also embrace Scottish culture such as standing stones, runes and messages written in the ancient pict language that looks like decorative lines or marks.
