Islay Spalding Contemporary Jewellery Design


I am a designer and maker of contemporary jewellery and kilt pins based at Double Door Studios in Dundee, Scotland.

My inspiraton comes from many places including natural forms, landscapes, surrealist and abstract art, nonsense stories and architecture leading me to create unique, sometimes colourful and intriguing wearable objects. I aim to create timeless but unusual designs, unique pieces that will last a lifetime, with quality materials and good craftsmanship.

I enjoy working with my customers to create bespoke pieces of jewellery and think it's important jewellery should have a personal meaning and story behind it. I specialise in handmade bespoke silver kilt pins, designed to have a traditional feel with a distinctive contemporary edge and regularly undertake private commissions.
