Fiona McAlear

Fiona completed her training as a Jewellery designer/ maker in the UK, receiving a First in 3D Design from Manchester School of Art in 2010. Followed by Post-Graduate study at the renowned Bishopsland Educational Trust Workshops.

Bishopsland is a centre of excellence for jewellers and silversmith. Here Fiona learnt from master Gold and Silversmiths, undertaking intensive classes in areas such as hand engraving, Gold fusing and chasing & repousse.

Fiona worked as a freelance Jeweller for over 4 years in London whilst setting up her own jewellery brand. In 2016 she was selected to exhibit at the Goldsmiths Fair in London; the premier event for showcasing contemporary Jewellery and Silver in the UK.

Fiona has now taken the opportunity to explore a new city, leaving her studio in East London and settling in a beautiful new space in East Vancouver, on the West coast of Canada. The proximity to nature and the offerings of the local rainforests of Vancouver are undoubtedly influencing her work and inspiring future collections.
