The Family Stone workshop in West Dunbartonshire is the creative collaboration of husband and wife team, Marley and Steven.
Marley designs and makes silver jewellery often inspired by her love of Arran’s beaches. She works mainly in silver, with occasional gold detail, and frequently incorporates beach stones, semi-precious stones and interesting wee pieces of sea ceramic which have caught her eye while beach combing.
Texture features greatly in Marley’s work and she loves the contrast of textured metal against polished metal which is most evident in her ‘Rockpool’ range which reflects the ripples on the sand caused by the waves.
Her resin and mixed metal bags made using her beloved 1930’s Singer sewing machine allow her to combine her jewellery techniques with her love of sewing.
Steven’s passion for stone polishing was sparked while beach combing on Arran. He left the island inspired and began studying the art of lapidary. His research on rocks led him to create his own stone cutting equipment and build a bespoke stone polishing workshop.
His distinctive bowls, quaichs and stones are all lovingly hand crafted in Scotland. Hand cut from rock and meticulously hewn to form the hemisphere, each stone is smoothed, through nine stages of polishing, to achieve the sheen of the final piece.
Unique to Scotland, the quaich is a two handled drinking cup often known as ‘the cup of kindness’ as immortalised in Rabbie Burns’ song ‘Auld Lang Syne’.
Steven also designs and makes titanium rings inlaid with a variety of materials.
Recently their work has combined once more to produce framed artworks featuring pieces of polished beach stone topped with hand pierced copper, brass or silver or a combination of these metals. These pieces are then mounted on 22ct gold leaf and framed.
