The country may have come to a close over this past year however Irish designers have been working behind the scenes to bring us carefully crafted unique jewellery.
There has been a huge shift in supporting local designers with Irish consumers becoming more and more mindful of quality materials and design and these Irish brands tick all of the boxes. New brands Gabsluk and Le Chéile saw their businesses flourish while existing brands such as Loulerie quickly adapted to the change. We are excited to see more and more Irish businesses opening this week and we wish them all the best for the Summer.
Gabsluk, created by Gabrielle Luksaite from Galway. Set up during the pandemic, her colourful beaded jewellery is ‘handmade with lots of love and care.’ We love these delicate pieces which are sure to bring a smile to your face. Her next drop is available on the 14th of May, be quick though we know it will sell out fast!
Loulerie, a jewellery boutique in the heart of Dublin offering an exciting mix of emerging designers alongside some more established names. Set up in 2007 by Louise Stokes on her return from New York working in Fine Jewellery, since then Loulerie has become a destination store for exclusive brands ‘from the whimsical to the bold, worn on a school run or a red carpet, Louise’s thoughtful jewellery edit imbues the wearer with energy and the opportunity to express their personal style.’
Le Chéile, a Belfast based jewellery brand established by friends Cara Mahon and Niamh McCluskey during the Covid lockdown. They realised life was too short not to do the things they love. Merging Cara’s silversmithing skills and Niamh’s eye for fashion they came together to form Le Chéile (Gaeilge :‘Together’). Using a range of different materials they create original hand made delicate pieces made to last. We are very excited for the launch of their next collection coming soon!
