Forget-Me-Knot handcrafted silver jewellery: earrings, pendants, bangles, bracelets and rings, all designed and created locally in Glengarriff, West Cork. I have been designing and creating silver jewellery for over twenty-five years, and continue to love the challenge that each new design idea brings. In my workshop at home in Glengarriff, I begin by working out an idea (sometimes drawing it out on paper first), before I take the next step, which is to work the idea into a fully formed design. For this, I use copper wire as a trial medium, making any changes that ‘work’ better, until I am happy with how a piece looks and functions. I then recreate the piece in silver, following my original template. My designs range from the simple and timeless to the intricate, and I am always working on expanding my range as each new idea pops into my head. I am working on a range of silver chain-mail jewellery at the moment, which I hope will prove popular for anybody looking for something a little bit different.
I always welcome commissioned pieces, either based on my own designs with a personal twist added, or from the client’s idea, if it proves possible. Don’t be afraid to ask; if I can work it out, it will be made!
