About Us

The Studio Jewellery workshop has been established for 30 years and has built up a reputation for the quality of fine jewellery made there. The flagship store and workshop is located in the picturesque seaside village of Fortrose, where the workshop looks out on to the 13th century cathedral.
The workshop has created bespoke jewellery for many well known customers over the years including designers such as Jasper Conran and Liberty of London. We also have our jewellery on The Royal Scotsman train, the Orient Express and in The British Museum. We have many happy customers who we have made one off pieces for, not least, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother.

Our Jewellery

The Jewellery is designed by award winning jeweller Susan Plowman who graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in 1987 with a honours degree in Jewellery and Silversmithing and has been in the trade ever since, Susan is a member of the National Association of Jewellers. 

The Jewellery is made in Susan's workshop using recycled and ethically sourced silver and, when available, Scottish Gold from Tyndrum. The diamonds and gemstones are all conflict free and from ethical sources. 

Susan Plowman is an avid bird watcher and naturalist and supports whale and dolphin conservation, with 20% from sales of her whale necklace going to the WDC. A percentage from sales of her ever popular puffin pendant goes to RSPB Scotland to support their work.

Special Commissions

To mark The Homecoming Year, Joe Gibbs, the founder of Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, devised a competition to design and make a mouse, inspired by one of the Burns best loved poems. The competition was open to all UK jewellers and was won by Susan. Her entry piece was a mouse created in 18ct white gold covered in 184 natural champagne, cognac, pink and fine white diamonds with a black diamond eye. It is clinging to a solid 18ct yellow gold stalk of barley, and is 29.5g of yellow gold and 29g of white gold. The mouse is pictured left, inside its hand carved box with a quote from the poem "To a Mouse."
