This collection was inspired by a request from a customer based at John O'Groats. He wanted a Groatie Buckie placed into a design as a keepsake for his son and his fiancee. The son took his girlfriend to a place called Ness beach near their home to look for a Groatie Buckie and when she found the tiny shell, he asked her to marry him. Sheila Fleet's amazing Tidal Treasures Collection was born.
The jewellery is made in precious metal - either sterling silver, gold or platinum - in Orkney. It is crafted by skilled craftsmen and women in Sheila's workshop and is then hallmarked in Edinburgh.
