Benderlochs Ellis is wowing with her earthy ancestral jewellery

Ellis Mhairi Cameron is being recognised as one of the countries top young silver jewellers.

In 2017 Ellis launched her debut fine jewellery collection; Ancestry. Ancestry stems from an interest in how our identities are influenced by our specific locations, environments and topography and how this forms social heritage. Ellis explores the theory of topophilia, the definition for a sense of place, with fragmented rock textures used to convey a sense of landscapes from the Scottish Highlands. The work also takes inspiration from the architecture of medieval Scottish buildings, of castles and ruined houses. Collaging subtle textures and forms, Cameron sets out to remake lost or imagined jewels from history. Seeking clients amongst the Scottish diasporas in the Americas, Australasia and across the globe, the jewels offer new treasures for contemporary lives.
