Beverley studied Craft & Design at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen from 1991 to 1995, while working with the designer/engraver Malcolm Appleby. She then spent a postgraduate year at the University of Ulster College of Art before returning to Scotland to work full time at Malcolm’s workshop. During the following three years she developed her skills in jewellery and traditional silversmithing techniques, and was involved in the creation of The Millennium Collection for the new Scottish Parliament.
In 1998 Beverley set up her own workshop in Aberfeldy, relocating to Banchory, the area where she grew up, in January 2000. She now works from her workshop near Aberdeen.
The surrounding countryside clearly inspires her brooch and highlandwear designs. She is motivated by her desire for knowledge in the art of silversmithing, developing exceptional skills in large bowl/beaker raising and spoon-making. Her hand-made chains and items of jewellery are unique, using precious metal combinations alongside precious and semi precious stones.
