Ola Gorie is one of Britain’s most important jewellery designers of recent times. A pioneer in the 1960s, she explored her Celtic and Norse heritage to find inspiration for stylish, wearable, modern jewellery. Her designs have continued to break new ground, and influence a generation of designers

Ola Gorie returned to Orkney from art college in the 1960s, where three jewellery shops in Kirkwall agreed to sell her designs. When she took over her own shop, success came quickly. Her early designs, the first to be originated in Orkney since Viking times, drew heavily on Orkney's Norse heritage, featuring images such as the Maes Howe Dragon, inspired by Viking graffiti in a Neolithic tomb

 Her jewellery found quick acceptance both locally and, by the end of the sixties, across the country. Appreciation of it grew as part of the wider craft movement in Britain in general, and the Scottish Highlands in particular. Her work drew inspiration from Orkney's Norse, Pictish, Scottish and Celtic heritage and also from natural forms, and art history.Commissions for one-off pieces came from the Queen Mother, Liberty's of London, the British Museum and the House of Commons

 She was awarded an MBE in 1999 in recognition of her work both as a designer and as a founder of the modern jewellery industry

Ola Gorie jewellery frequently appears in judges’ lists for prestigious awards such as the Scottish Gift of the Year and the Kayman Award. One of their brooches was selected by the Goldsmiths Company for inclusion in the prestigious ’Celebration in Gold and Silver’ exhibition for the Queen’s Jubilee in 2002

Ola Gorie is based in the medieval heart of Kirkwall, the Orkney Islands’ capital (pop. 9,000.)

Today the family business is located on the town’s main street, in the shadow of the magnificent sandstone St Magnus Cathedral

Ola Gorie was the first jeweller to produce jewellery influenced by Charles Rennie Mackintosh's work. Some of this work was sold by the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society in Glasgow and the Glasgow School of Art, both later commissioned more Mackintosh influenced designs in silver and gold

Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928) architect, designer and artist, is today celebrated internationally as one of the most significant talents of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His birthplace, Glasgow, is central to an understanding of his achievements for it is here that the most important of his surviving work is to be found, all of which is publicly accessible
