Welcome

The wild Atlantic ocean, the waves, the shells and the coastal flowers of county Sligo are the inspiration for all my collections. My newly-discovered ancestral links with the tiny Dernish Island have strengthened that inspiration.  

All jewelry pieces in my collections are  handmade in our studio workshop in Sligo, by our family team of master goldsmiths.

The collections are created exclusively in sterling gold and silver, with each piece hallmarked by the Assay Office of Ireland.  Our Irish Assay Office hallmark  is your guarantee of jewelry made from the highest quality precious metals. 

All our orders can be shipped worldwide. Postage is free. Commissions are accepted.
