Ive recently discovered NEOS North East Open Studio = 10 day festival in Aberdeen and shire where you can visit artist’s and maker’s studios to gain an insight into their practice with the opportunity to purchase some of their work!
Today I visited Aubeebop Jewellery by Aubin Stewart and Nicole Ferguson Jewellery at 13 Hopetoun Grange Aberdeen. Was little nerve wracking visiting the makers studio as I didn’t know what to expect but Aubin and Nicole couldn’t have been more lovely and welcoming! We chatted about both their journeys into jewellery making, and sourcing of materials for some of their pieces, including sea glass that makes up some of Nicole’s beautiful necklaces.
Nicole’s sea glass necklaces displayed beautifully in the studio
Aubin and Nicole’s great display of equipment and techniques used in jewellery making
If your looking for a unique shopping experience, with a chance to meet the makers and understand a bit more about the process in a super cute studio with a cup of tea would definitely recommend popping along.
