My background is in fashion retail and window display and I started making Jewellery while training and working as a visual merchandiser in London. While I was working at the great emporium "Libertys of London" and being close to the jewellery designers and bead stores of Covent Garden my creativity was inspired . Many of my days off were spent trawling the vintage stands at Portobello and Camden markets seeking out unusual and eclectic pieces that I would often rework into new designs.
On returning to Ireland Alison Walsh Jewellery was set up in 2006 in my home studio in the Southwest of Ireland along the wild atlantic way.
I create bespoke eclectic pieces as well as different collections each season . I believe gemstones and the use of jewellery can lift your mood and enhance wellbeing. I am self taught and have also taken jewellery and silversmithing courses.In my designs I incorporate gemstones and pearls with plated and precious metal sourced from all over the world . I also use vintage beads and recycled gemstones from broken unworn jewellery often donated by clients . All my jewellery components are ethically sourced from reputable certified suppliers.
All jewellery is nickel free and hypo-allergenic. My packaging is minimal and made with recycled elements that can also be recycled.
I hope you enjoy browsing my collections.
