"I grew up beside a pier outside the remote village of Kinvara in the West of Ireland. This tiny little pier was a treasure trove of fishing nets, lobster pots, crab cages and boat chains. The images have stayed with me, they're etched in my memory and inform my work to this very day. from the composition of the fishing nets strewn over a pier wall to the copper rust tones of boat chains contrasting against the silver tides. Every element is an inspiration.
My favourite link pendants and full chain necklaces highlight an innovative contemporary approach to design, accented by evocative Gaelic names like Ancaire, Cloch, Fada and Tonn Bheag."
