Sheila Fleet has come a long way since the jewellery designer-maker decided to open her first workshop in Orkney in 1993.
After starting out in a converted shed, Sheila now employs some 55 skilled craftspeople in a dedicated workshop and showroom, and Sheila Fleet Jewellery is one of Orkney's biggest and best-known exports.
All Sheila Fleet Jewellery is designed, made, finished and packaged at the workshop in Orkney, Scotland. Each piece bears the maker's mark SD (Sheila Dearness - her maiden name) and a hallmark from the Edinburgh Assay Office, demonstrating that it has been independently quality tested for fineness.
At Sheila Fleet we are a small, dedicated team who are passionate about what we do. The atmosphere in the workshop remains informal, reflecting the ethos of a family business. Sheila's son Martin runs the day-to-day business operation, and husband Rick is the photographer, whose landscape and portrait images are featured throughout this website.
We are committed to nurturing talent and employ skilled craftspeople locally to make each individual piece, keeping alive traditions which have been a part of life in these islands since Neolithic times.
Sheila Fleet Jewellery has developed a reputation in Britain and around the world for distinctive design and quality. You can view Sheila's collections at her workshop in Tankerness and gallery in Kirkwall, Orkney (link to shop page). There is also a Sheila Fleet gallery in St Stephen Street, Stockbridge, Edinburgh, where you can talk to knowledgeable staff about how the individual pieces are made. Sheila Fleet Jewellery is also available in our concessions at Jenners Department Store, Edinburgh, Jenners Lomond Shore, and House of Fraser, Glasgow. Alternatively you can see our jewellery and get specialist advice at the independent stockists listed on the Stockists page (link to relevant pages).
