My name is Monica Milton, I am a self taught designer / maker based in Crossgates, Fife.  Working from my home studio I design and hand make unique sterling silver and 9ct gold jewellery.

I love gemstones!  I try and use the well-known gemstones such as Sapphire and Amber to the more unusual such as Labradorite or Rhodochrosite.   

I source gemstones from all over the world such as Opals from Australia and fair trade Pink Sapphires, Rubies, Spinels and Tanzanite from Tanzania.

When designing a piece I take inspiration from the gemstone, it could be the play of colour within the gemstone or the internal features.

I have my Certificate in Gemmology and currently studying towards my diploma with The Gemmological Association of Great Britain.                   

I am a member of The Scottish Gemmological Association and Association for Contemporary Jewellery.
