Company History

Vanilla Ink was founded in 2009 by Kate Clifford under the premise that there was a need to support graduate jewellers to make that step from education into industry. The original workshop was in the heart of the industrial quarter of Dundee, before moving to Glasgow in 2015. The jewellery school was established in 2017 when Scott McIntyre came onboard.
