Coburg House - Hidden Gems

Every piece on sale is made in house by the award-winning resident Coburg jewellers.

A total of 17 jewellers, each with their own distinct style, will be showcasing their creations, crafted in a range of materials, including resin, ceramic, wood, felt, glass, silver and gold.

Coburg House is a thriving hub of artists, designers, and makers in the heart of Leith.

The former granary has housed studios for more than 17 years and is now home to a dynamic creative community with a well-established reputation for excellence.

Jewellers based at the Coburg House Studios include Kat Adamson, whose inspiration flows from paintings and drawings, Julie Allison who applies photo etching to precious and non-precious metals, the award-winning Kaz Robertson, who works mainly with resin, and Donna Barry, who designs and makes large one-off pieces for special exhibitions and collections of smaller wearables for galleries and shops throughout the UK and internationally.

Other makers include Jackie Bell whose work is influenced by the study of natural forms, especially those which are primordial and repeat themselves in many different parts of the natural world and Grainne Broederick, who is mainly inspired by ancient and classical symbolism, mythology, various forms of sculpture (especially in wrought iron) and the fusion of art and fashion.

Her collections combine sterling silver with freshwater pearls and semi-precious stones.
