Grace Girvan was born and brought up in Orkney. She moved to Edinburgh in the late nineties to study jewellery and silversmithing at Edinburgh College of Art, and now lives and works on the coast in Fife. Collecting and studying objects found on the shoreline is the starting point in Grace's creative process. The objects inform the colours, textures and compositions of the jewellery. Pebbles are combined with silver and enamel to create beautiful, distinctive jewellery. The use of subtle, translucent enamels depict the sun bleached colours observed on the shoreline.
