I create pieces of bohemian jewellery using shells, sea glass and sea pottery from my local beaches.

My customers are ocean lovers, whether they surf every day or live in a big city and don't see the sea for months on end. What they all have in common is the desire to covet a piece of the great wide ocean, to keep with them. It can be deeply personal & emotive. For some it is the wild crashing waves they crave, for others it is the soothing tranquil lapping water. Or they'd like to connect to the sheer joy and headspace one gets from being at the beach! I try to evoke a sense of immersion in nature for them. And free worldwide standard postage means that I can send a little piece of Ireland to satisfied customers all over the globe!
There's nothing I love more than a stroll along a quiet beach and collecting sea treasure for my jewellery and inspiration for my paintings. Everything I experience; the sounds, the sights, the smells, the textures, inspires my work. I try to convey the sense of being at the shore through the colours and texture I use. It's all very romantic. Romance and that sense of bohemian freedom also transpires in my jewellery through the use of delicate yet bold shapes and materials. I want to evoke joy, freedom & self expression, which as it happens are the things I feel when I create.
