Barbara Shearer is a maker of contemporary jewellery based in Scotland. Barbara aims to maintain a sense of quality in her jewellery practice, whilst striving to minimise the hidden costs to the environment by using recycled silver and recycled or ethically sourced gemstones.
Many of Barbara’s designs begin at the bench rather than in the sketchbook. Being material-led, the designs develop from the juxtaposition of material samples until the right combination is found.
Barbara’s designs have strong geometric influences often with simple shapes layered to create more complex patterns. She also has a love of hammered textures that tell the story of the manufacturing process.
The images on this page show some of the custom pieces that I have made. Please contact me if you would like to discuss commissioning a piece of jewellery or if you would just like to comment on any of my pieces.
A selection of stock pieces are always available in the webshop.
Red Robin Pantry introduces eco friendly packaging:
This year it’s been our mission to source compostable & biodegradable packaging for our new confectionery ranges - not an easy task I tell you! Sure if you are opening up a deli or takeaway there are loads of options, but when i comes to finding eco packaging for products it’s a nightmare! If our chocolate is going to be sustainable, organic & eco then so should our packaging!!
After what seems like never-ending searching finally and some creative repurposing of packaging designed for food to go, finally we’ve sourced packaging for the last of our troublesome products - marshmall ...
Wax seals for wedding stationary (if you can still get married of course!) or for business purposes to highlight your brand. Standard or personalised options available. Just peel them off and stick them on!
