We created Love from Skye to showcase our handcrafted jewellery and to offer jewellery repairs and bespoke work. Next door to the workshop is our shop, where our jewellery can be viewed alongside contemporary and traditional jewellery and gifts, made by other local and Scottish designers. The workshop can be seen through a viewing window in our entrance area.
(All of the jewellery on our website has been designed and handcrafted by us in our workshop. Our other collections are available to view in our shop).
Love from Skye’s ethos is to promote local and Scottish creativity by selling only Scottish made products, to offer high quality jewellery to suit all pockets and to offer a friendly welcome in a relaxed atmosphere with a professional service.
Love from Skye is a boutique styled shop enjoyed by local shoppers and visitors alike.
We had many years of experience in the jewellery industry before launching our own business in 2013. Both of us worked for a jewellery business, who previously traded from the same building, for several years.
“My interest in jewellery began as a very young boy when I went into the original jewellers in Broadford to ask if I could hold a real piece of gold! I continued to go in on a weekly basis to see what the jeweller was creating which lead to being employed as a Saturday boy as soon as I was old enough! I began training ‘on the job’ before I even left school and have now been creating my own jewellery and undertaking repair and bespoke work for many years.”
“I began working with jewellery at the age of just 14 when I got a Saturday job in the original jewellers in Broadford (which is where Paul and I first met as teenagers!) This went on to become full time employment on leaving school. During this time, I also studied with the National Association of Goldsmiths. I then took a break from working in the jewellery trade to study fashion design at Edinburgh College of Art but found myself back home and working with jewellery again after graduating.”
The love from Skye team grew from being just the two of us in 2017 when our baby girl joined us! Also, in 2017, Alec joined Paul in the workshop for a couple of days per week and Annie also joined the wee team. Paul is training both Alec and Annie in the workshop and you’ll also find Annie serving in our shop along with Bryony’s mum Fyona!
