What is vanilla ink?
Based in the industrial quarter of Dundee, Scotland we think there is a difference between making jewellery and being a jeweller; that the difference between having a dream and making it real is understanding the market and your place in it; and that there is a need for a supportive transition from education to independent success as a maker. We know it's a big and sometimes scary world out there - but only if you're on your own. That's why we offer a friendly, collaborative and an affordable studio environment, expert one to one mentoring, tailored business advice and support, endless supplies of tea and biscuits... and a year to find your feet and make your mark. We're making more than jewellery. We're making jewellers. Vanilla Ink is Making Jewellery Work.
"We would encourage our final year BDes and MDes jewellery students to develop opportunities with Vanilla Ink to help further their careers."
