I'm taking part in a very cool exhibition called Wunderkammer:Heritage in the making. It is a specially commissioned cabinet of curiosities in Ireland's oldest public library, Marsh's library.

I'm so chuffed! http://www.futuremakers.ie/winners-of-the-future-makers-awards-supports-programme-2015-announced-2/ #NCAD #jakicoffey #irish #futuremakers #ID2015 #sieraad #amsterdam #jewellery #studiojewellery #award #prize #DCCoI
