The story behind the brand

My name is Andy and from early on I remember trying on my Nana’s small collection of costume jewellery.  I loved the way it shimmered and sparkled in the sunlight.  I still wear an emerald brooch which belongs to her and brings back such wonderful, happy, memories of my time playing dress-up with her.  

Over the years I have enjoyed finding special items of jewellery to match outfits for various occasions and events such as graduations, christenings and weddings, key moments in my life.  However, recently I have found it increasingly difficult to find affordable, handmade jewellery that sparkles and complements what I am wearing. 

I searched Ireland and just couldn’t find what I was looking for.  On a few occasions I sent abroad for jewellery but it became expensive with extra import taxes, customs and postal fees making the items expensive.  So fast-forward to December 2021 I decided to try my hand at making a few pieces myself.  Members of my family received earrings and necklace sets as Christmas gifts and the feedback was very encouraging. The creative journey began…

My first collection has come from experimenting with colours, I look to nature and the world around me but also the nostalgia of memories with family, movies in a bygone age and fashion.  I would like to think my jewellery appeals to every kind of woman who enjoys looking her best every day and on special days.

I use the finest European crystals set in silver-plated or rose gold-plated brass settings.  The pieces are nickel free and hypoallergenic so should not irritate the skin.  To keep the jewellery looking it’s best it is advisable to avoid wearing the jewellery when bathing and avoid creams and perfumes, where possible.  To clean the jewellery place in a bowl of warm water and add mild dish soap, gently rub with your fingers for a few minutes and dry with a soft, clean cloth.

If you like my jewellery but you would like alternative colour-ways I will gladly consider creating pieces to match your outfit.  Please contact me directly to discuss. 

I thoroughly enjoy making the pieces and I hope you enjoy wearing them.
