"Jewellery that speaks" My jewellery has a story to tell. My inspiration for my collections comes from a great love of Irish history, poetry, storytelling, folklore and nature. As a result, I have designed and crafted several unique and charming collections.

About Eileen Hassett Jewellery Design

I am from Loughmore, Templemore, County Tipperary. I have always had an eye for style and creativity. In recent years, I began a new chapter in my life, exploring the arts and discovering my true passion.

I have studied at Grennan Mill Craft School in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny where I discovered Metalcraft. Through Metalcraft, I feel I can express my true creative self and give structure to my bespoke designs and bring them to life. I continued my studies at The School of Jewellery, Dublin. This is where I began to craft my own personal jewellery range.

I have many inspirations behind my collections but one of my most personal collections is entitled “Donie and The Dancing Master”. My earliest memories are of my time with my father in his workshop. I always knew I had inherited his talent for design and craft. This collection is influenced by my father and a letter he had written in 1937 when he was in primary school. I came across this letter a few years ago when researching my family tree. The letter describes the process of making a puppet like figure using wood, that of which I recreated using silver and gold with gemstones.
