Emma Macleod

June 4, 2011

Another Jeweller to be released into the wild!

I give you Emma Macleod! Emma, a born a bred Fifer has just completed her four years at Duncan of Jordanstone and her Degree Show last week showed just how hard she has been working!

Inspired by architecture Emma’s structural work comes with great timing with the changes that are happening to Dundee just now.

“Structures for the body”

Using wire and angles, Emma has taken large scale structures and translated them in small scale structures for the body.

Emma has shown an interest in architecture for a while and it has been lovely to watch the progression into sleek and considered designs. Living in Dundee I often see where Emma has taken her inspiration. Passing the oil rigs down on the waterfront makes me instantly think of Emma’s work.

In the degree show pop-up shop, Emma’s constructions were translated beautifully for the shop environment. She made simple but well executed items that were made very commercial for the market.

Emma’s work did not only make an impression on me as she was awarded the NEO design award. Which for Emma would be exposure in a brand new contemporary jewellery shop in Dundee.

Emma is planning on staying in Dundee where she will continuously be inspired by the changes happening to Dundee. especially with the V+A and the Kengo Kuma project.

Emma’s plans for the future:


Neo Design, Dundee



Emma is also available for commissions :)

Good Luck in the future Emma :)

    I think Emmas was my favourite of all the designers this year. Second favourite being the Orcadian landscape stuff displayed next to hers.
