Jeweller from Fermoy

Simon Barber Jewellery's profile image

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.

This striking pendant is a carefully crafted play of circles within circles, offset to create a gently rolling feel. Each disc is lovingly shaped and polished to give a wonderfully tactile feel. Shimmering at the centre is a heart of gold. With strong reference to ancient Irish Art, this stunning piece is both contemporary and ancient.
