Oh hello 2017!

After a really nice long break at home on the West coast of Ireland, I am now fully re-charged and have lots of exciting plans for 2017.  Some good shows and exhibitions coming up early in the year which is great fuel to get the creative juices bubbling.  I have already started on new one off pieces and the stones I have for them are out of this world so I need to do them justice. My faceting classes in Bristol have been one of the most interesting things that I started in 2016 and has helped me gain a deep understanding of the gemstones I use in my work. Being a gemstone nerd is a great passion!! I shall be concentrating on big statement pieces as 2017 needs some omph to kick it off.  So keep an eye on my instagram for sneak peeks of work in progress: https://www.instagram.com/eilyoconnelljewellery/ Hope you all have a fantastic year ahead. May it be positive for everyone and even if you have kicked off the year bad for one reason or other, every new day is also a possibility to start over x
