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. It opens today, is curated by Shane O'Donoghue and Simon Doyle.
Supported by Design & Crafts Council of Ireland and Heritage Week.
I'm taking part in an excellent exhibition at the moment. It is called Not Too Precious and is being held in the Ruthin Craft Centre in Wales. Curated by Gregory Parsons, it has some of the big players of the jewellery world including Felieke Van Der Leest, Lena Peterson and Timothy Information Ltd.
Ellie Jones-Hughes made this video at New Designers interviewing the students about their material choices. Find me at 2.26

Delighted to be exhibiting again this year at New Designers with my MFA work. It is their thirtieth birthday. I'll be with our NCAD metal and jewellery undergraduates and with our other MFA, silversmith Cecilia Moore.
It's a great chance and treat for us to see the work of other metal / jewellery classes as we are in a bit of a bubble over here in Ireland.
