When I started out in life I was not entirely sure what I wanted to do or be, I loved creating, but my medium was through words and photography. I studied French and English literature and worked in financial businesses but like everyone wanted to explore. I ended up carving jade in New Zealand, unaware than my tired happy hands had sparked something that would change my life. Led by my heart and instincts I changed direction and started to study traditional jewellery making back in 2005.
My inspiration comes from what brings happiness and positivity…crashing waves, balance in nature, ordinary wonder, the challenges and science in making, intuition, your stories and lives that you want to mark and cherish.
The jewellery and pieces I make celebrates these connections. I use recycled metal and ethically sourced raw materials. I recycle my own metal and can remelt, repair and relove yours too.
My workshop in Dublin has beautiful light and looks out over the rooftops. Using a mixture of traditional and modern goldsmithing skills, it is in that space that I make small collections of work and in each collection there are some unique pieces with subtle variations or unusual stones.
I love to meet the people I am creating for and really understand what they want so if you like my designs then perhaps I can create a bespoke piece for you.
