About Simon

Simon is a fifth generation jeweller from Co.Cork, so you could say that jewellery is in the blood. Founded in 1869, the family business has passed from generation to generation, and it’s in the family workshop that Simon honed his skills alongside his father, Dermot. Having left home to study art and then horology, Simon returned to begin experimenting and creating what would eventually become his own range of handmade jewellery.

Simon still uses many of the tools and techniques passed from father to son for five generations to create his own unique style of jewellery. Simon’s designs are inspired by a love of the natural world, with its wealth of textures and organic shapes, and by the stories of the past that live in the landscape in crumbling ruins and ancient woodlands. To these, Simon brings his own story and interpretation, capturing his love of Ireland past, present and future.
