Jewellery Talks – August Craft Month 2017

Thank you to everyone who attended the Art Jewellery Network Jewellery Talks. This was is a lovely opportunity to meet and network with jewellers based in Ireland as well as get an insight into the practice of emerging and established makers. As part of the event everyone brought a piece of their favourite contemporary jewellery for the ‘Schmucktisch’. This provided a lovely chance to discover and discuss techniques, materials and inspiration.

Presentations by; Claire Skelton, Rachel McKnight, Niamh Hannaford and Melyssa Shannon.

NCAD Metals and Jewellery Graduate Show 2017

NCAD, Metals and Jewellery Graduate Show 2017

We had a great day in Dublin this month visiting the NCAD graduate show. One of the new graduates, Emma Larkin, kindly gave us an insight into the work on display. We missed the NCAD degree show last year and it is a pity to see that this year, similarly to Belfast the number of graduates is much smaller. However there were some very interesting pieces, such as Caoimhe McGuckin’s shoe brooch with lovely details (front & back) and Jessica Whittle’s Connectivity range which included individually made display cases for each piece. See the images below for more details.

Graduates this year include: Caoimhe McGuckin, Emma Larkin, Hannah Lawlor, Jessica Whittle, Sinead Christie and Sophie Scullion.
