Hello, I hope everyone's doing well. It's been a funny old Autumn, with the cold finally kicking in this week making us remember we're entering wintertime.
Well it's safe to say I've let the journal posts slide in '22. I can't believe the year is almost finished. It's been a busy one! Although I actually got a bit of writing done recently while sick with covid (spot the small business owner catching up on admin from their sickbed) so do watch out for more frequent posts next year. Anyway before the year is out I thought I'd do a roundup of some lovely Autumn press features.
October saw a flurry of press mentions which was really lovely.
I was interviewed by Marie Kelly for Irish Tatler for a beautiful feature discussing the meaning imbued in handcrafted and bespoke jewellery. I always adore Marie's writing and it was a real honour to be quoted by her.
I was delighted to also be mentioned in an article by Pat Kane on sustainable jewellery in that same issue of Irish Tatler.
Irish Independent Life Magazine
Irish Farmers Journal
Most recently I was interviewed by Maria Moynihan for Irish Country Living as part of their Meet the Maker series.
Maria's questions really made me reflect. It's a lovely read if you're curious about where I started and what I love about what I do. You can read the full interview here
I am always truly grateful to the journalists and stylists who choose to promote independent Irish makers and small businesses like mine.
With Christmas firmly on the horizon I'll be posting again very very soon about Christmas orders, posting deadlines and a rare discount I'm offering for Green Friday (which is next Friday 25th November!).
Then next year I'll be writing more regularly on topics like gold and gemstones. If there's anything to do with my work or the world of fine jewellery and goldsmithing that you'd me to write about just drop me a message and I'll do my best to include it.
Have a lovely weekend!
