Designer – goldsmith Ann Chapman first opened the doors of Stonechat Jewellers in 2012. It was while studying for a degree in European studies in France that Ann had fallen in love with the bijoux jewellery shops of romantic Paris. It was then that she had decided that, one day, she would establish her own contemporary jewellery shop and workshop in Dublin.
Having finished her degree in Trinity College, Ann undertook an initial short jewellery making course at NCAD. Following a hands-on apprenticeship of several years with a variety of jewellery studios, she was granted one of only twelve coveted places on the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland’s goldsmithing course in Kilkenny. The broad skill set she acquired during this training affirmed Ann’s passion for fine jewellery, precious metals and coloured gemstones.
Since Ann established Stonechat Jewellers it has gone from strength to strength, and she now employs a team of 6 goldsmiths. Ann’s jewellery collections capture her minimalist, beautiful aesthetic - making handcrafted, modern design accessible to all. Browse her collections below or pop into the shop in the Westbury Mall, Dublin 2, where you can see the Stonechat Jewellers goldsmiths at work in the in-house workshop.
