RDS Craft Awards 2016

I am delighted to announce that my work entitled 'GLOW' CHOKER has been selected for exhibition at the RDS Craft Awards.

Established in 1968, the annual Awards showcase excellence in Irish craft. It is an open platform for Irish craftspeople to have their work assessed by an independent judging panel of Irish and international craft experts. The jewellery category was selected by the highly skilled goldsmith, Rudolf Heltzel. Rudolf came to Ireland 50 years ago at the invitation of the Irish Export Board, tasked with introducing good design and industry practices through the Kilkenny Design Workshop initiative. Over five decades he has established an unrivalled position in the evolution of modern Irish jewellery.

The exhibition will be open to the public from Wednesday 13th July to Friday 15th July from 10am - 5pm (7pm on Thursday). It will then continue as part of the Dublin Horse Show from Wednesday 20th July to Sunday 24th July.

After the exhibition all work will travel to National Museum of Ireland - Country Life; Turlough Park, Co. Mayo where if will be exhibited from Tuesday 9th August to Sunday 13th November.
