About

Fine jewellery inspired by our architectural heritage.

I'm Síne (Shee-nah), and I believe that the time and skill inherent in considered craftsmanship is our one true modern luxury. I use traditional goldsmithing techniques to reflect the time honoured craftsmanship of the past in making quality and enduring contemporary investment pieces. Each piece contributes to the lives of children in Tanzania, one of Africa’s biggest gold and diamond mining countries. You can learn more about this charitable partnership here.

THE INSPIRATION

The pieces are inspired by the beauty and detail in our old buildings: an everyday reflection of our fundamental human desire to make beautiful things. Think of beautiful Georgian townhouses turned tenement slums, and later restored into contemporary homes or reclaimed by nature. It's the enduring beauty of the weathered external brickwork that most often remains, ageing gracefully with time, and giving us a connection to both the detailed craftsmanship of old, and the lives lived within those walls. In creating pieces, I imagine the vast and varied lives they'll touch, connecting generations by evoking memories of old and inspiring memories anew. They're designed to last many lifetimes, embolden many lives and participate in many stories.

MY STORY

Calling on my family heritage of stonemasons and carpenters, as well as a fascination with how we interact with our dwellings, I infuse this rich history into each piece of fine jewellery that I make. I started my jewellery making journey in 2013, and exhibited my first fine jewellery collection at the National Craft and Design Fair in 2015. I went on to study full time traditional jewellery and goldsmith skills at the School of Jewellery Ireland, graduating with distinction in 2019. I was accepted to be part of the renowned INKubator programme at Vanilla Ink Jewellery School in Scotland in 2020, and was shortlisted for a DCCI Future Makers award in 2021. Prior to this, I had the great privilege of working as a specialist cancer physiotherapist for 14 years. I handcraft all my pieces myself from my workshop in Dublin. I am registered fairtrade goldsmith and a member of the Design and Craft Council of Ireland (DCCI) and the Council of Irish Fashion Designers (CIFD).
