Zoe Davidson Jewellery
Zoe Davidson draws much of the inspiration for her unique jewellery from Orkney’s seas, coastlines and rich history. She designs and makes all her pieces, mixing traditional silversmithing techniques with more unusual processes, including fold-forming and anti-clastic raising.
Zoe graduated in Jewellery & Metal Design from Dundee's Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in 2013. She then undertook internships with Amsterdam fashion designer, Iris Van Herpen, and Plockton-based jeweller, Gilly Langton, before working with two Orkney based jewellery companies.
After launching her own business in 2016, back home in Stromness, Zoe was selected to show works alongside fashion-guru, Gok Wan.
In 2019, Zoe won Bronze in Scotland’s Trade Fair Best Product Awards, was nominated for ‘30 Under 30 Rising Star Awards’ in Retail Jeweller and was shortlisted for ‘Best Self-Employed Small Business Owner’ for the Small Awards.
One of Zoe’s latest collection is inspired by the 5,000-year-old Neolithic village – Skara Brae. This abstract range reflect the house shapes, incorporating some of their passageways, beds and hearths.
As well as working on the development of her innovative core collections, Zoe also creates bespoke jewellery, including engagement and wedding rings, and stunning one-off pieces.
