I am in the process of creating a new website. Apologies if you are unable to view images in my Galleries section. All other sections of this website should still be operational. If in doubt and you wish to contact me please call 0211686966 or my facebook page Ailish Jewellery.

Wishing everyone a wonderful start to 2017. Thank you all for being patient with me over the past year. It was sad to say goodbye to my shared workshop space at Form Gallery, I will miss being able to share my creative craziness with Koji, Winnie and Samantha. My workshop has now moved home, and the new challenge is balancing parenting with jewellery making! xxA

Once upon a time brooch

 

Once upon a time there was a girl who went on a quest of self discovery. She journeyed through the thorns of subconscious/ inner truth, was carried away by her dragons but with courage learnt to turn and face them, dived to the depths of her soul and emerged triumphant, with gratitude, trust, acceptance and love.... to live happily ever after
