Combining contemporary design with the historical tradition of Irish metalwork, Sandra makes jewellery from recycled silver and gold . She established her jewellery brand in 2018 after completing a BA in Fine Art at NCAD, as well as the DCCI’s Jewellery and Goldsmithing Skills and Design Course. Simple geometric forms, mixed metals and intricate textures are common threads throughout her collections.
Sandra’s experimental style is inspired by working directly with materials in the workshop. Ideas and techniques rooted in the ancient world are combined to create contemporary jewellery. Geometric forms are assembled and then contrasted with patterns imprinted into metal. Using recycled silver and gold, the contrast between the textured and smooth surfaces exposes the beauty of the material. As one of the ancient universal languages, we can see geometry all around us if we take a moment to look. This jewellery captures little pieces of the world’s beauty to wear everyday.
