About

I work mainly in copper with brass and sterling silver accents and use a variety of techniques such as etching, enamelling, flame painting and hammering to create unique jewellery pieces and sculpture designs

My name is Maggie Read and I’m a jewellery designer and co-owner of The Hirsel Gallery in Coldstream. Following a career in the textiles industry, I started my first crafting business 10 years ago after having my second child. We moved to the Scottish Borders 6 years ago where I was lucky to find a workshop on the beautiful Hirsel Estate which allowed me to expand my business into other areas. I found that as I explored other mediums and techniques, my love for jewellery making grew. I work mainly in copper with brass and sterling silver accents and use a variety of techniques such as etching, enamelling, flame painting and hammering to create unique jewellery pieces and sculpture designs.
