Good morning everyone!
We’ve been up early tying up the loose ends before hitting Strandhill People’s Market. I’ve visited the market countless times over the past couple of years – enjoying fresh food and a browse on a Sunday – but this is my very first time to take part and call myself a stallholder! It’s been a goal of mine for a long time so I’m happy that it’s finally materialising. Better late than never, eh? Or as I’ve been teaching my Leaving Certs: Más vale tarde que nunca.
Normally the market takes place on a Sunday, but they’ve added extra dates due to demand and popularity during the Christmas season. For one day only, i.e. today: Saturday 17th December 11am-4pm I am selling my handmade jewellery at the market. Each shell is handpicked from the beautiful beaches around Sligo: Strandhill, Culleenaghmore and Lissadell to name but a few. Our packaging is sustainable, made from recycled cardboard. I think my pieces make the perfect gift for anyone with an affiliation to Sligo. It’s like wearing a piece of home.
They are dainty and delicate; simple and yet effective. I like to wear my little treasures from Sligo daily: dressed up or dressed down. Pictured below, I’m wearing my large shell and pearl earrings during London Fashion Week.

This Christmas my shell jewellery collection has been included in Gift Guides by both Irish Design advocate, Floralesque and popular site Go Strandhill. I’m honoured to be listed alongside such talents. Check out Go Strandhill’s Top 10 Christmas Gifts and Floralesque’s Irish Design Gift Guide.
As well as my own range of shell jewellery, I have a very limited supply of our popular upcycled Drumshanbo Gunpowder gin lamps. They are really unique and may just be the ideal gift for a friend or your home.
For the mini fashionistas, I’ve a range of festive fairy jewellery and novelty stud earrings. Ask me about my kiddies fashion and jewellery making parties.
Can’t wait to see you all. Pop over say hello!
