I’ve lived on the Dingle Peninsula on the Western coast of Ireland with my partner and our lovely German Shepherd Louie for a decade now. After growing up near Tralee town I spent six years in Cork studying music & interior architecture - after deciding to move back to Kerry, I spent 3 years living in Castlegregory village living by the ocean before making the decision to move over the Conor Pass to Dingle.
I have always had a love of jewellery and would secretly admire pieces worn by mum and her friends when I was little, especially silver bangles and big earrings – when my mum wasn’t around, I remember looking through her jewellery box and trying on some of my favourite pieces! Sorry Mum! My sister and me would play dress up and wear our own little bits of costume jewellery…little did I know that I would one day have my own successful jewellery design business.
In February 2019 I opened my own shop on Dingle’s Green Street where the full range of my work is available. I have a separate studio where I hand make all my pieces - I have five separate ranges currently available, all with their own distinct personalities, but the constant inspiration for them all is Corca Dhuibhne, the Dingle Peninsula, the landscape, the history, the music, the culture, the people.
The journey so far has been an exciting adventure with its own learning curve – I’ve met some amazing people along the way, and I can’t wait to see what the future brings!
