Whether you are visiting for a few days, or were born and bred in our beautiful country, a subtle and stylish reminder of Ireland is a lovely thing!
Ireland is a country of craft and creativity, and our incredible landscape and rich history is a source of inspiration to many! We love all things Irish, and our collections often reflect our Irish roots. If you are looking for a memento of Ireland to bring with you wherever you go, come and visit us in the Westbury Mall, Dublin 2. In addition enjoying our tranquil, welcoming shop just off Grafton Street, you will be able to meet the talented ladies who make our jewellery! Our collections are designed by Ann Chapman and handcrafted by our team of goldsmiths in our in-store workshop.
Our Irish influenced jewellery includes…
Torc – torc
Our Torc collection is inspired by prehistoric Irish jewellery that dates from 2200BC – 500BC. This Bronze Age jewellery, worn by both men and women, features a variety of fascinating pieces including discs, torcs and lunulae that have been discovered at multiple sites around the country. Inspired by metalsmiths of the past, Ann Chapman designed a contemporary take on the Torc, employing traditional forging techniques to create these beautiful, simple forms.
Our Stepping Stones collection has a lot of sentiment behind it! Each piece is designed to represent the wavy path of life, with ups and downs along the way, and is intended to be worn as a celebration of personal achievement and perseverance through challenging times as well as good times. 10% of all Stepping Stones sales are donated to the Irish charity Aware, a wonderful organisation that provides essential services to people suffering from depression and other mood related disorders.
The original inspiration for the Stepping Stones designs came from the beautiful landscape of the Giant’s Causeway, a must see part of Ireland for everyone, regardless of whether you are on holiday or have lived here for years! Ann’s goldsmithing journey began in Steenson’s Jewellers in Northern Ireland, just a stone’s throw from the Giant’s Causeway, and she visited these incredible basalt columns frequently when she lived there.

Inspired by our namesake, the ‘Birdie’ is a stonechat, a small bird that can be seen along Irish coastlines.
“A stonechat is a little-known Irish bird that is a beautiful shade of grey with a little dash of red. It is a perfect example of understated beauty – something I want to reflect in both my designs and in the shop in The Westbury Mall.” Ann Chapman.
Our Birdie pieces are made with sterling silver and bimetal – a layer of 22ct gold fused to silver.
Our Willow collection is the latest Stonechat collection, and was inspired by the willow leaves growing in Ann’s garden. There are many species of willow native to Ireland, and they are beautiful trees that support a great variety of wildlife! The leaves are an elegant shape, and we have hand-embossed our Willow pieces with silk paper, giving them a wonderful organic texture that is different every time – just like in nature, no two pieces are exactly the same!
