The Family Stone workshop in West Dunbartonshire is the creative collaboration of husband and wife team, Marley and Steven.
Marley graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1995 and has been designing and making jewellery ever since with her designs often being inspired by her love of Arran’s beaches. She works mainly in silver, with occasional gold detail, and frequently incorporates beach stones cut and polished by Steven, semi-precious stones and interesting wee pieces of sea ceramic which have caught her eye while beachcombing.
Texture features greatly in Marley’s work and she loves the contrast of textured metal against polished metal. This is most evident in her ‘Rockpool’ range which reflects the ripples on the sand caused by the waves.
