Kirsty Stewart is a young Scottish jewellery designer maker; she uses traditional craftsmanship combined with contemporary design to produce her beautifully hand crafted jewellery collection.
Kirsty graduated in June 2013 from Edinburgh College of Art with a BA (Hons) in Jewellery and Silversmithing. Since then she has returned to Fife to set up her own jewellery business ‘Kirsty Stewart Jewellery’.
Birds, in particular there flight and feathers, inform her work. In some pieces she creates scenes and scenarios of flight, others are focused on the details, patterns and textures of feathers. She creates her work using traditional techniques such as forging, to manipulate the metal and achieve the desired textures and patterns. She combines precious metals with both precious and semi precious stones to incorporate colour into her work.
