creating extraordinary Jewellery inspired by the light, the elegance and the beauty of Ireland's Atlantic Wilderness
Designer Jewellery from the edge of Europe
Ireland's Wild Atlantic Coast at the Heart of contemporary Jewellery design
Martina Hamilton Jewellery Collections are handmade in Sligo, a stunningly beautiful place on Ireland's wild Atlantic coast. And it is the wildness of the Atlantic ocean, the wet crystal light and sea-glass waves, the tide burnished beaches, the shells and the coastal flowers which are the inspiration for our jewellery designs. A newly-discovered ancestral link for designer Martina with Dernish, a tiny Island off Sligo's west coast which has been uninhabited since the 1950s, has strengthened that inspiration. All jewelry pieces in our collections are handmade in our studio workshop in Sligo, by our family team of master goldsmiths.
September 2017 Featured Collection
The leaves are in their autumn beauty
the woodland paths are dry
Under the October twilight the water
Mirrors a still sky...
The openning lines from "The Wild Swans at Coole" one of W B Yeats' most celebrated poems. So, even if this one wasn't set in Sligo, and also as we're already half way through the season it's still prompted us to make our Leaf Collection the featured choice for the month of September. Hand crafted sterling silver candle flame leaves are individually combined with our choice of sumptuous cultured pearls.
