to create 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.
May 2017 Featured Collection
"She sells seashells by the seashore.
The shells she sells are surely seashells.
So if she sells shells on the seashore,
I'm sure she sells seashore shells."
A bit of seashore tongue-twisting mischief to go with a stunningly beautiful start to May weather-wise, here in Sligo. In keeping with the summer theme we thought we'd make ourshell collection the focus of attention this month. Its one of three collections Martina designed from an afternoon spent with her children, picking shells and threading them onto pieces of string on Trawalua beach - between Dernish Island and Mullaghmore - in County Sligo.
