Designer: Punch and Fable
Graphic and colourful handmade jewellery and limited edition artworks created in my cottage studio in the west of Ireland.
About Punch and Fable
Punch and Fable was created to inspire a more colourful, lively and creative way of life. I tell stories of my life experiences and inspiration through intuitively chosen colour combinations, illustration and graphic symbolism. Colour is hugely important in my work.
I started out my career living in Dublin, and working in a very fast-paced and digital way. Over the years, I have developed a much more hands-on, intentional and varied way of working which now include jewellery making, painting, print making, writing poetry, cooking, teaching yoga, running retreats and creative workshops. And I've left the city and now live in the Irish countryside with my partner Liam and baby boy where we grow food, enjoy nature, make time to create and enjoy a slower pace of life.

I find inspiration everywhere: through memories, travel, nature, the body, food, motherhood... I like to make tangible things from my ideas and experiences. My work crosses many disciplines; a poem I write may inspire a painting, and this in turn may inspire a pair of handmade earrings. Or a drawing may inspire a painted muraI and this may end up being a limited edition frameable artwork. l like to think of my 'studio' as four locations: the art/design studio upstairs in our loft, the yoga studio, the kitchen and the garden. I need to spend time in all these spaces for my creative process to flow and to feel grounded and inspired.
