After eight years of marriage I recently got my forever wedding ring and I have a new found appreciation of the talented jewellers and goldsmiths we have in Ireland. Today we’re sharing two very different talents, Miriam Wade Jewellery and Silver Works Workshops, stay tuned for lots of beautiful wedding ring ideas…
Miriam Wade Jewellery, Mullingar
Miriam Wade is an award winning jewellery designer and goldsmith. Miriam studied jewellery and goldsmithing for seven years in both NCAD and with The Design and Crafts Council of Ireland on their jewellery and goldsmithing skills course. With her experience working for several diamond and jewellery companies, Miriam has vast expertise in many jewellery techniques and has amassed a diverse portfolio of commissions. With a design degree from NCAD, Miriam will work with you and your spouse-to-be (or just you, if it is for a surprise engagement ring) to develop ideas and inspiration with you into fully fledged, highly personal and completely unique design.
Miriam will guide you on your choice and help you make the right decisions when it come to choosing your wedding jewellery, not just the design but also the correct metal and stones that will suit your everyday lives. It is a special investment and one that you want to last for the rest of your life.
