Geraldine Murphy has a BA in Sociology and History from TCD, among many other qualifications. She acquired her jewellery making skills at various workshops and classes, however she is mostly self taught. Her work in animation, such as the 'Give Up Yer Auld Sins' series which was nominated for an Oscar in 2001, has greatly influenced her design. Murphy takes most of her inspiration from animals in action. Each piece of Saba Jewellery is handmade by Geraldine in her studio in Dublin.
