By Rhona Petrie

I am a jeweller and painter working and living in East Lothian, Scotland. I have had a lifelong passion for drawing and painting and graduated as a mature student from Edinburgh College of Art in 2009 with a BA in Combined Studies (Art and Design). This course gave me the opportunity to explore other disciplines, one of which was jewellery. This eventually became an important and much loved part of my course and I have continued designing and creating precious metal jewellery since graduating. I use Sterling silver to make my jewellery, with the occasional use of 18ct gold and gemstones. I am gradually moving over to using recycled silver (Ecosilver) as well as ethically sourced gemstones. I enjoy techniques including saw piercing to create intricate designs. texturing and making pieces which include hinges and catches. With the exception of fine chain and earring posts and backs, all of my pieces are handcrafted. Most of my work is hallmarked at the Edinburgh Assay Office.

      Many thanks for your message.

      I’ve sent you an email from my gmail account but in case you don’t pick that up, I am at Cockenzie House and will be there Tuesday to Thursday this week. Please let me know if you would like to meet up and we can arrange a day and time. I have pendants and earrings you may like to see.

      Many thanks

      Rhona
