Charming, adventurous, authentic & stylish, the LILY BLANCHE Collection is designed to surprise & delight.
Based in my studio in Stirling, I have taken inspiration from my grandmother: Lily Blanche Sheridan, a descendent of The School For Scandal playwright, Richard Brinsley Sheridan.
Born in 1903, Lily Blanche lived an extraordinary life - travelling thousands of miles with her four small children, bringing them up in India in the last days of the Raj, and witnessing the rise of Gandhi.
Returning to Britain, her home took a direct hit in the blitz and she relocated to Scotland where she fell in love with the landscape. In her later years, she lived in a picturesque whitewashed croft on the beautiful, windswept Hebridean Island of Skye.
Lily Blanche was a fantastic cook and a highly creative person who embroidered, sewed, knitted and cooked to a professional level. She was influential in encouraging my creativity. I have fond childhood memories of rummaging through her jewellery and finding beautiful and exotic pieces.
I have fond childhood memories of rummaging through her jewellery & finding beautiful & exotic pieces.
Inspired by her jewel box, I have taken vintage designs and given them a modern twist by combining them with outstanding 21st century design. Many pieces, such as the Magical Charms and the Memory Keeper Sphere, open up to reveal a hidden secret and have caught the eye of high profile clients such as Judy Murray.
LILY BLANCHE jewellery is imbued with meaning and hidden secrets, creating the heirlooms of tomorrow from the conversation pieces of today.
