Welcome! My name is Catriona MacKenzie, and I am a designer/maker of contemporary modern glassware and jewellery.

Producing high quality Craft Jewellery is my passion. I use traditional jewellery techniques and splashes of glass colour and carved decoration to create desirable, modern pieces. With every piece of work being made to the highest of standards, my work is both something to enjoy and treasure.

In 2017 I set myself the challenge of designing a ring each month inspired by Myxomycetes. Each ring was made from scratch using precious metals and lampworked glass. I used different techniques like foldforming, wax carving and casting, with different decorative techniques such as frosting, satining, gold-plating, oxidising and patination.
You can see these 12 rings by going to my website: http://www.catmackglass.com/jewellery/#/2017-monthly-design-challenge
