Alison set up her workshop in 2003 after graduating from Edinburgh College of Art, and Following 10 years in Glasgow she is now back in the Dumfriesshire countryside where she grew up.
"I make jewellery inspired by antique treasures and the stories they tell. Heirlooms passed through generations building significance. I have strong memories of secretly discovering my Mum’s jewellery box as a child, trying on each piece and wondering at their hidden histories.
The Catkin Collection draws on a pattern seen long ago on an antique ring. A memory which lay dormant for more than 10 years until I came to make my own wedding ring when I gave myself the time to develop my unique technique of layering sometimes hundreds of tiny disks to make a pattern reminiscent of the Spring catkin flower."
