...Made in Orkney - by

 The Sheila Fleet Signature Logo 

Following her graduation from Edinburgh College of Art, Sheila Fleet worked 26 years as a designer in the trade before setting up on her own in 1993.
Throughout her career she has won many design awards in both Britain and Europe. However Sheila feels the challenge is always in what lies ahead and with lots of new ideas ready to develop she will continue to build on her range of jewellery designs.

 The Tidal collection  Sheila produces and designs sophisticated Silver, Gold and enamel jewellery collections reflecting times past and present. All items are made individually to order by a skilled team of craftspeople and artisans at her workshop in Orkney.

With a passion for her island environment Sheila creates her original designs reflecting nature’s wonderful sea, sky and landscape colours. Orkney’s history and folklore are also a rich medium for her inspiration.  Moonlight necklet  

She feels her designs take on an energy while in the research and development process. Developing designs which are a meaningful expression of her chosen subject is very important to her eventual creation.
 Sheila, one of Scotland’s leading jewellery designers, opened her first Gallery outside Orkney in April 2008 at 18 St Stephen Street, Stockbridge in Edinburgh.

 Her small boutique style outlet houses her unique range of designer jewellery which is all made in her Orkney Islands workshop. She chose the Scottish capital for her first independent Gallery as this is where she spent many happy years training as a designer. Over the past 16 years she has created her own distinctive style using vibrant enamels.  

Gallery opening times are Mon – Sat 10am – 5:30pm and closed on Sunday. Many of her designs are also set with diamonds in gold and platinum. If you can't get there, however, check out her website for stockists.
