"I grew up in West Belfast in the late 60s and early 70s and often escaped to Donegal in the West of Ireland on Summer holidays. My grandfather and great aunts and uncles lived in Malinmore, Glencolmcille, a remote rural area dotted with megalithic tombs and standing stones - our Summer playground. These ancient relics were referred to as Diarmuid and Grainne’s grave....the lovers pursued by Cuchulain. We listened to my Great Uncle tell stories of the “little people” living under the mountain where you might see smoke rising up from the ground and hear them playing music. I never knew whether he believed it or not...or for that matter whether I did!
This duality of my upbringing both living in an area of conflict and finding refuge in a beautiful part of Ireland with such a rich history of folklore and a strong sense of belonging, soaked into my creative DNA. I hope you get as much from wearing my jewellery as I do in designing it!"
