Heather McDermott Jewellery specialises in contemporary jewellery. She takes her inspiration from the shoreline on the Isle of Skye, where she grew up.
The tideline of Skye is a treasure trove of unique objects discarded from the urban environment and deposited by the power of the Hebridean swell. Here rope, wood and plastic take on a subtler identity as wind and wave shape, and re-shape form and colour.
Many of Heathers designs use repetitive geometric shapes that are reminiscent of fishing nets and lobster pots. Using a mix of the industrial material stainless steel, sterling silver and pearls and adding colour with gold plated, bright industrial paint or oxidised silver.
