If you had told me 10 years ago that I would be living in rural Ireland and running a small jewellery business from my home workshop, I would have laughed!
In those days I enjoyed a very busy career in London, posh holidays and a regular manicure! Fast forward 10 years, 2 beautiful children later and house build under our belts, here I am, happier than ever doing something I absolutely love! (And I have bad nails most of the time but I'm ok with that!)
Although I've always been a bit 'crafty', dabbled with a sewing machine etc. I hadn't considered that I might actually be able to make Jewellery. I've always loved wearing simple, elegant, everyday jewellery so when I came across a Jewellery School in Dublin after our big move, I knew this was something I wanted to try and I haven't looked back. I attended part time courses for 18 months and loved every minute and it definitely gave me the confidence to move my little venture forward.
I particularly love personalised jewellery, I love the sentiment and symbolism it beholds to the wearer having made pieces for celebrations, new babies, engagements, mothers / fathers days, Christmas and even memorial pieces which I know are deeply treasured.
I am absolutely passionate about my work, so you have my personal guarantee that each and every piece is made with the dedicated care and attention it deserves. To me this is not just about making jewellery, these pieces represent loved ones and treasured occasions and I take this responsibility very seriously.
My jewellery making journey has definitely been an evolution and something I will continue to cherish and nurture in the future.
