NCAD graduate and west of Ireland inspired Jewellery Designer Lynsey De Burca who creates minimal aesthetic jewellery pieces has launched a Gold capsule collection.
Living in Moycullen in Galway, Inspiration is found in her surroundings and from her studio there she runs a business that now has an International customer base.
Lynsey marries metal works and captivating gemstones into her creations. “Through my NCAD Metals Degree I have a wide knowledge of metalworking- specialising in jewellery making and precious metals. This was where I was encouraged to develop my individual craft and design skills. Gold has always been such a love of mine and this year I wanted to celebrate it with its own collection,” explained Lynsey.
After further study at NUIG where she gained a diploma in Gemmology and also a greater draw ad knowledge to make informed decisions when incorporating gemstones into several collections “The Gemmology course provided me with an education in laboratory-based techniques used to identify gemstones and also provided me with hands on experience in identification protocols using a comprehensive collection of gemstones.”
Life experiences, education and a clear passion for creativity has led De Burca to gain a very loyal following. Her online and her pieces are stocked at independent jewellers and retailers across Ireland. For creating her work, she combines many different skills like Piercing, Soldiering, Roller Mill Texturing, Forging and Electroplating,
“For my jewellery; every piece is created in sterling silver and using centuries old craft techniques, each link from every one of my collections is hand forged in my studio in Galway. The links have their own unique fingerprint – they are all different, organic. Each individual one retains an untouched raw texture on the outer edge contrasting against the smooth high polish of its flat finished front. This reflects the rough texture of the rocks along our coastline in repose against a sometimes flat and tranquil silver tide.
For creating her work, she combines many different skills like Piercing, Soldiering, Roller Mill Texturing, Forging and Electroplating, “With over 14 years’ experience in retail that has proved invaluable to me. These experiences in high-end jewellery galleries, applied arts galleries, antique jewellers and fashion boutiques just ignited my love for making beautiful things,” said Lynsey.
The Gold Capsule Collection includes a Pendant, Earrings, and Rings starting from €80. To shop the collection log onto https://lynseydeburca.com/ or get social across Instagram and Facebook.
