About the Maker
Annie Quinn has been working as a jeweler for the past twenty years, having first studied jewelry design at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, and later apprenticing to Bent Exner in Denmark where she specialized in architectonic jewelry design and gilding.
Annie's jewelry takes inspiration from Irish culture, landscapes and architecture. From the céili music of her family's tavern in the Gaeltacht Lár in County Donegal, to the rugged coastlines populated with traditional cottages and battered by the wild Atlantic winds, each piece of jewelry embodies key aspects of native Irish landscapes and culture.
All silver pieces are hallmarked by the Dublin Assay Office.
