Grace set up her workshop in 2003 after graduating from Edinburgh College of Art with a BA(Hons) in Jewellery and Silversmithing. Working from her studio in Burtisland, Fife, Grace creates work for exhibitions in the UK and internationally.
Collecting and studying found objects from Scotland's shorelines is the starting point in Grace's creative process. The collected objects inform the colour, texture and compositions found in Graces jewellery. The objects themselves are often incorporated into her pieces. Pebbles and driftwood are combined with silver and enamel to create beautiful, distinctive jewellery. By employing a restrained colour palette of soft greys, greens and blues, Grace aims to convey a sense of calm, which she associates with the sea and shore.
Grace was born and raised on the Orkney Islands and now lives and works on the coast in Fife.
