Maureen was mesmerised the 1st time she saw the light of the rising sun entering the roofbox, filling the passage and shining onto the floor. This sunbeam illuminates the chamber of Newgrange for just 17 minutes every winter solstice. It's an extraordinary sight. This collection is a celebration of that event and the changing season from dark to light. This brooch really shows the spiral with a clean, contemporary twist. It sits perfectly on the lapel of a jacket and can be worn horizontal or vertical.


Maureen’s jewellery is renowned for its sophisticated simplicity where detail is considered and restrained. Her simple forms are softened with curves and natural lines, making each piece eminently wearable and a subtle statement of elegance. Her work is tactile and, without the addition of surface detail, light glints from the polished surfaces. She graduated from The National College of Art and Design, Dublin in the late 1980s and set up business in Kilkenny. Following further studies in silversmithing in Copenhagen, and stone setting in Vancouver, she moved her studio to Dun Laoghaire, County Dublin where she is now based. She is a member of the Crafts Council of Ireland and the recipient of many awards and accolades.
