Gilly Langton

Gilly Langton is Contemporary jewellery living and working in Plockton, a small village on the West coast of the Scottish Highlands. She has been running her own creative practise for the last 14 years, exhibiting on an National and International level and sells through her own website and High profile fairs such as Chelsea Craft fair and Origin, Lustre and Eu-nique. She created The Great Court Jewellery Collection for the British Museum in 2000. She also runs her own weekend jewellery course in the Highlands and Mentors for Hi-Arts on an advisory level. She is currently working in Dundee at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design as she has been awarded a Craft Development Bursary funded through Creative Scotland to develop a new body of work for the Collectors market.

Gilly combines sterling silver with shock elastic to create bold pieces of jewellery inspired by the nautical architecture of her surrounds of a fishing village. She looks to creels, ropes, boats and jetties and the bright fluorescent buoys that are scattered across the Loch for the daily catch of Langoustine’s. Each piece of Gilly Langton Jewellery has its signature dot that runs through her entire collection. Her jewellery is bold, fun and extremely wearable. Gilly’s continued development keeps her jewellery fresh and of the moment, constantly challenging her design, making skills and process to become a better each jeweller each day. For Gilly making jewellery isn’t just a job, it’s her vocation.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 30 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
