Handmade bespoke designer jewellery

 I am a Jewellery Designer living and working in Ayrshire, Scotland, creating rustic vintage fashion jewellery in my workshop.

I make beautiful handmade fashion jewellery and unique gifts in a variety of materials and I put a huge amount of love and care into every piece I create.

To get the perfect end result I talk to my clients about their ideas, gauge who the jewellery is for and their possible tastes, requirements, and then design their bespoke jewellery based on the brief they have given me.

If you are interested in learning how to make your own jewellery I also run classes teaching adults and older children skills on jewellery techniques and processes.

I have 8 years of experience in designing and making jewellery, and 4 years of teaching with a 100% success rate.

Thank you Lisa for creating a beautiful cross for me. It is exactly what I had envisioned. The quality of this item is first class and a nice strong leather necklace. Your communication throughout the process made it easy to get my order through and your updates were appreciated. I am so happy with this and have had compliments over it. I will continue to recommend you for personalised jewellery and will gladly give you my custom again.

Fantastic experience at Lisa McDonald’s studio making rings. Lisa managed to deal with us two numpties and we managed to make the rings! Highly recommend if you fancy making a ring (in whichever metal you prefer). Reasonably priced and most enjoyable. Would be a great idea as a Christmas or Birthday gift.
