In the showroom in Kirkcudbright Kathryn offers a wide range of designs in a choice of metals and gemstones. Kathryn is also happy to undertake commissions to design and make something unique and personal to your own specific requirements.

Inspired by natural forms her designs are contemporary but timeless. Browse the collection on-line or come and visit the showroom & workshops at 21 St Mary Street, Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway, DG6 4AA, Scotland.


The inspiration for my designs is drawn mainly from nature and the raw materials themselves, gemstones being a particular passion. I am also inspired by travel , architecture and history.
