Hummingbird Jewellery was born on a bus travelling around Australia back in 2012. I've always had an interest in crystals and stones and whilst travelling, I taught myself how to create jewellery with these beautiful healing stones. I relocated to Ireland in 2013 and settled in West Cork.
Inspiration is everywhere on this beautiful coast as are raw materials such as feathers, shells, stones and sea-glass which I love to incorporate into my work. Going for a walk to the beach usually results in a pocket full of treasures!
I never know what I'm going to make until I get a feel for textures, colours, shapes or energies... and from that the piece will almost create itself. It's a beautiful organic process that feels like a co-creation with Mother Nature herself.
