Jewellers work bench, Aimi Cairns Jewelley

Capturing the evocative nature of Scottish forests and coasts, my distinctive silver jewellery is created using sustainable materials, recycled metals and traditional craft techniques individually or in small batches from design to finished piece in my Aberdeenshire studio.

I am inspired by the tranquillity of nature and the importance of preserving our environment to create jewellery that will inspire the wearer to take a mindful moment in nature to soothe the soul.


Sustainability is at the heart of everything I do; my jewellery is created using sustainable recycled silver. Where possible I use Scottish gemstones ethically sourced from an independent lapidarist in Fife. I use traditional craft techniques to hand make all my pieces individually or in small batches from design to finish in my Aberdeenshire studio. I use non-toxic materials in my process and paper based fully recyclable and minimal packaging.

I have always been creative and in 2006 I was seeking a creative outlet to find my way through a difficult time in my life. I began evening classes and discovered a passion for jewellery making almost by accident. I was hooked and after 3 years of evening classes I kept the hobby up at the kitchen table. I firmly believe creativity is vital in maintaining good mental health and an integral part of self-care. Now when I’m not at the bench (or walking amongst trees) I am drawing, embroidering, cooking, colouring in, making stained glass or gardening.

My daughters are my world, and by far the best thing I’ve ever created! I began my small business in 2014 when I became a mother to allow me to develop a creative practice for my own wellbeing and to work from home to spend as much time as possible watching my girls grow up. 

My studio is a part of our home and I am proud to show my girls that following a passion in the pursuit of happiness can be very rewarding.
