Iona trained at Glasgow School of art and Bishopsland Educational Trust before starting her self employed jewellery/silversmithing business in 2019.
Her work is inspired by the lines, movement and irregularly from local beaches in the Highlands of Scotland where her family hometown. She loves collecting objects from the beach and studying them, isolating an element from her research and adding it to the objects she makes. Iona translates these elements into her work using the techniques of fusion, chasing and repousse, corrugating, scoring, folding, enamelling and stone setting.
She aims to run relaxed workshops where you design and produce your own pieces, experimenting with techniques.
