Islay Spalding

Islay Spalding
Islay Spalding is a jewellery designer and maker based in Dundee, Scotland. She creates quirky and colourful one-off pieces of jewellery inspired by surrealist art, especially the work of Desmond Morris, Joan Miro and Yves Tanguy. Silver is combined with hand dyed resin and sometimes semi precious stones and pearls to create biomorphic, sculptural shapes that then form rings, pendants and brooches. Islay also specialises in bespoke Kilt Pin designs, which are contemporary and unusual compared to the traditional style. The Kilt Pins are fabricated from sterling silver and she uses techniques such as photo-etching, forging and oxidisation to achieve these unique designs.
