A collection drawn from a stone-carved motif to be found in St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall and desinged to celebrate Shetland's Up Helly Aa festival in 2008.

This collection was designed by Sheila in 2008 for Roy Leask, Lerwick’s Guizer Jarl at Shetland’s world-famous fire festival, Up Helly Aa. Each year the Jarl portrays a Viking character from the sagas, and usually with some kind of link to their own family. With Roy’s daughter living in Orkney, he chose to be Kol Kalison who supervised the building of St Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall, Orkney’s main town.

Sheila designed the piece to reflect the detail on the Up Helly Aa squad’s outfit, which was inspired by the wave design on a carved circular stone in St Magnus Chapel.
