Silversmithing & Goldsmithing
Inspired by the landscapes and traditions of Mourne my metalwork reflects upon our heritage.
I’m Claire, a jeweller, silversmith and artist based by Annalong; at the foot of the Mourne Mountains. Rural life and the landscapes I grew up around have a strong influence on my practice, something I show through the use of texture, form and material in my metalwork. Graduating from Ulster University’s Ceramics, Jewellery and Silversmithing degree course in Summer 2018; I’ve been lucky to study abroad in Finland as well as exhibit my work as part of UU’s End of Year show and the prestigious New Designer’s exhibition in London.
Workshops and meetings can take place from Moneydarragh Hub or contact me directly for more details on my private studio.
