Cork based jewellery designer and goldsmith Eileen Moylan specialises in crafting bespoke jewellery, engagement and wedding rings in precious metals.
Working closely with clients, Eileen brings ideas and concepts through to exquisite finished pieces of art.
She offers a personal one-to-one service, guiding her clients through the design process. Providing expert advice on choice of metals, gemstones and diamonds, each and every aspect is carefully considered to create the perfect one-of-a-kind piece.
With 20 years of experience forging, creating and crafting, Eileen has made thousands of designs ranging. From engagement rings and wedding rings to remodelled jewellery, sculptures and silverware.
Eileen’s journey to becoming a goldsmith began after completing her degree in art and masters in design in UWIC, Cardiff, Wales in 2002. After completing her studies, she went on to train and work under well known Cork jeweller Chris Carroll.
Her passion for making high quality, fine jewellery drove Eileen to launch her own bespoke jewellery design service. With a focus on timeless jewellery made to last, sustainability is at the heart of every creation she crafts. Her unique designs offer the perfect alternative to mass produced, machine-made jewellery.
All of the diamonds used in Eileen’s workshop are ethically sourced and carefully hand chosen. Whether a client is looking for lab grown or ethically sourced, she will work with trusted suppliers fully certified under the Kimberly Process.
In 2010, Eileen launched the sister company, Claddagh Design, making handcrafted Irish jewellery for the global Irish commmunity. The collection has been recognised with numerous awards including ‘Best Overall Product’, ’50 Top Products’ and ‘Best Jewellery Product’ at Showcase Ireland.
Silverware and Sculptural
The eight Municipal District Chains of Office for Cork County as well as the South and West Kerry Chain of Office were handmade in Eileen’s studio. Examples of her sculptural work can be seen at the annual Irish Pen Awards and Listowel Writer’s Week. Eileen’s corporate silverware gifts are regularly presented to overseas visitors by Cork City and County Council. Most recently, a specially commissioned piece was presented to Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall to commemorate her visit to Ireland.
