We are heading to the Isle of Skye to meet the islander – Michelle Seviour of Indigo Berry. Michelle is passionate about designing and creating unique and affordable jewellery. Each piece of Indigo Berry jewellery offers an emotional connection to the landscape and culture of the Isle of Skye.
As well as incorporating the alchemy of turning silver clay into hallmarked sterling silver, Indigo Berry jewellery showcases the unique properties of ethically sourced gemstones, fossils and even vintage buttons. You can find an exclusive collection of Indigo Berry jewellery on isle20.
“Living in the Isle of Skye I am literally surrounded by inspiration. The colours of the landscape, wild flowers, textures and patterns on the shoreline – all of these might find their way into my jewellery designs. My creativity also draws on my passions for Celtic Art, fairy tales, geology and social history”.
Having the courage and drive to launch Indigo Berry in 2012 was quite an achievement. Although she had been making jewellery for herself and friends for many years. “I am immensely proud that each of my handcrafted silver pieces bears my own ‘makers mark’ as part of the hallmark”. Michelle loves to interact with her customers face to face and was a regular stallholder at local craft fairs. Since March 2020 the pandemic has halted craft fair events. With many of her customers unable to visit the island, she faced up to the challenge of making it possible for them to shop Indigo Berry remotely. As well as her website, this included adding her work to isle20.
