The Forge Foundations

Based in the rolling hills of beautiful South Lanarkshire, Scotland, The Alchemist’s Forge is situated in an estate lodge cottage in a home studio south of Biggar.

Inspired by the surrounding landscapes of the Scottish countryside, the animals that dwell in it and the ancient history of Scotland and her people, The Alchemist’s Forge creates unique hand crafted sterling silver jewellery with gold accents that are instantly recognisable.

After studying Jewellery and Metalsmithing at Duncan & Jordanstone School of Art & Design, Dundee, Sam decided to leave silversmithing for a time to travel and research her passion of Scotland and its history. Using photographs she took and sketches she drew, Sam started to transform the organic forms found in the landscapes as well as the animals she came across into bespoke designs which could then be recreated into beautiful jewellery. Using traditional silversmithing techniques, these hand crafted pieces have led to a style that can not be mistaken.

  1. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
