For this gift guide I’m going to show you some jewellery that I love. There are so many fantastic jewellers out there that it was hard to get this down to a manageable list but here are my absolute favourites. In no particular order.
The Steampunk Collection by Melanie Hand. These are just so cool and quirky. There are dragonflies, keys, hearts and more. Shop here: https://www.melaniehand.com/collections/steam-punk
The Blue Moon Collection by Martina Hamilton. This design is crafted in hallmarked sterling silver, and set with amethyst, peridot and blue topaz. I just love this and I also love the other versions, one has an amethyst and the other one has a blue topaz. There are also rings in the collection too. https://www.martinahamilton.ie/martina-hamilton-shop/blue-moon-silver-pendant-five-stones
Make a wish with this beautiful dandelion pendant by Ruby Robin Boutique. I actually bought this from Cait and I because I fell in love with it. This piece features real dandelion seeds, encapsulated in a crystal clear eco-resin globe.
Beautiful one off pieces by Tiffany Budd Goldsmith. You know when you buy something from Tiffany that you will be the only one who owns it. http://www.tiffanybudd.com/new-available-work/
HEN Jewellery. If you are looking for something different this is the website for you. I also absolutely love the social media accounts, it’s not all about the jewellery, you will see the personality behind the brand. https://henjewellery.ie/
Celestial Aquatics by Ruth le Gear. These are very special, you choose the water essence you would like and choose your handblown glass orb. There’s a powerful story behind the work Ruth creates so head to her website to find out more. https://www.celestialaquatics.com/about/
The Wild Felter has beautiful products including homewares and art prints but for the jewellery post I’m adding this beautiful robin brooch, although I love the fox collection too. https://thewildfelter.ie/
If you have a GAA fan in the house you can buy them a piece of jewellery in their county colours. These are a brilliant idea from Shuul Colours. https://shuul.com/
Kate Connolly is inspired by the poems of W. B. Yeats and the Sligo landscape and uses this inspiration to produce beautiful pieces. https://www.kateconnollyjewellery.ie/
Amelie Gagne makes quirky colourful jewellery and I bought the umbrella necklace and earrings which I love. She has a new inspirational collection too. https://www.ameliegagnestudio.com/
McGonigle Glass Studio in Donegal have some beautiful pieces of jewellery. I bought a pair of earrings from them which I absolutely love but this bracelet caught my eye on their website. https://www.mcgonigleglassstudio.com/ourshop/prod_7386332-Solid-sterling-silver-bangleLets-go-somewhere-where-the-stars-kiss-the-ocean.html
More robins, this time laser cut earrings by the Messy Brunette. I also love the fox brooches here too but they are sold out at the moment. https://themessybrunette.com/collections/woodland-collection/products/eco-friendly-robin-stud-earrings
Naoi has some beautiful pieces of jewellery, featuring hand painting and decoupage. I was browsing on The Biscuit Marketplace and the necklace below caught my eye. It’s just €26 too, which is an absolute bargain. https://thebiscuitmarketplace.com/shop/naoi/
Danu Ceramics have some beautiful products, including these delicate ceramic moons. Shop here: https://www.danuceramics.ie/product/small-crescent-moon-in-pink
Alan Ardiff. Gorgeous jewellery with some moving pieces too – and yes they actually move. You need to look at these on Alan’s website to see them in detail: https://alanardiff.com/
Claddagh Design. Beautiful pieces of jewellery inspired by Irish Heritage. Check out the Ogham pieces, Celtic Knots and of course the Claddagh. https://www.claddaghdesign.com/shop/
