Aoife de Burca – Silver Mother of Pearl Pendant
A little about Aoife de Burca designs…
Aoife is a West Cork based silver smith who’s creative flow shines as delicate crafted pieces with raw earth gemstones. She designs and creates each piece by hand and find inspiration in the world around her – earth bound in nature and sky bound in the cosmos!
Her love affair with jewelry making began when she was travelling Australia where she found herself in a local bead shop in Byron bay, selecting beads to make jewelry for friends and family. After a few years of this as a hobby she ventured off again to South East Asia where she was completely inspired by the quaint town of Ubud, Bali, a town renowned for it’s silver & gold smiths. On returning to Ireland she was accepted to study jewelry design and art metalwork for two years where she finished in May 2014 and was awarded full distinctions.
