Zoe's sculptural jewellery shows her adoration for 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.
About 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. More recently, Zoe was asked to design a special collection to commemorate 150 years of the RNLI in Orkney, with 10 per cent of the proceeds from the sales of this Saltaire range donated to the charity.
In 2018, Zoe’s jewellery was chosen for sale within Edinburgh Castle, reflecting the quality and intricacy of her work, and it is on display in Skara Brae's visitor centre, Orkney.
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.
