Off the beaten track, the Duncan House gallery and workshop is located in the old Strathaird Steading on the Isle of Skye, stood just above the home of the Ancient MacKinnon Chiefs in Kilmarie and overlooking Loch Slapin.
Garth Duncan started making jewellery in 1972. Although he is best known for his Ancient Celtic knotwork and Pictish style, he also designs and makes many modern pieces. As a jeweler, he deals in fine diamonds, every kind of high quality gemstone and fancy setting techniques. He alloys his own gold and silver, works in platinum and a non-allergenic white gold alloy that is so white it needs no electro-plating.
All of the jewellery and knives are designed and hand crafted from start to finish by Garth at the Steading
It has taken Garth many years to learn and perfect the many methods and disciplines required to take traditional work and diverse projects to a fine jewellery level. Some of his customers have commissioned very elaborate items and he welcomes new and challenging commissions.
