Our idea


Designworks Studio - Home to Expressive, Authentic Irish Designer Jewellery

Run by award winning goldsmith and jewellery designer Tuula Harrington, Designworks Studio strives towards building a greater awareness of jewellery craftsmanship. Promoting skill and design as valid processes in the creation of contemporary jewellery and other beautiful objects.

Here at Designworks Studio we engage with the public and various artists / designers alike. Encouraging all to relish in the ideas and processes behind the jewellery, created and displayed in-house. Our goal is to create a culture of respect and value for time and workmanship, which can so often be dismissed or by-passed. We believe there is a significant need and demand for these values in todays jewellery industry. We stand beside our makers and are proud to offer our customers the very best of Irish Contemporary Designer Jewellery.

As part of our mission to spread the story of contemporary Irish jewellery to everyone, customers can now purchase our designer jewellery directly on our site, in the shop section.

Current Designers stocked at Designworks Studio:
Eily O Connell, Filip Vanas, Ger Breslin, Helena Malone, Maria Dorai-Raj, Moritz Schurmann, Natasha Heaslip, Nicole Schuster, Nuala Jamison, Patricia Gurgel-Segrillo, Sean Osborne, Tuula Harrington, Hanna Tommola, Helle Helsner, Paula O’ Callaghan,
