Black Box Craft Fair

Black Box Craft Fair

Thanks to Julia for the fab photos she took at lastyears Local Craft fair in the Black Box. What a weekend! The place was full of life with music, food, craft, chat, customers, friends and craic! I did a demo on Sunday on how to make a large silver neckpiece- i think i made a bit of a rackett! I dont think people realised how noisy jewellery making can be- especially when you’re hammering like a lunatic on an iron stake- great fun though!  It was so lovely to meet so many new people and to chat to my customers. I really enjoyed explaining the making process behind the pieces. So that people do know that it is handmade and is created here in Galway. Im very grateful…

new collection

Lynsey De Burca

Feeling very inspired recently!- A recent commission prompted me to research ancient Celtic jewellery- such as beautiful lunulaes, torcs and Bronze Age brooches. Ireland has a stunning and rich collection of fantastic ancient Celtic jewellery artefacts. Focusing on Irish heritage, i also started looking at the history of Aran knitting ( a source of inspiration that i always come back to- as it was the basis for my entire degree collection). I started to combine the 2 sources and came up with this round viking knit pendent- the first of a new collection for me!
