Rachel McKnight


Rachel McKnight’s preferred medium of plastics offers a playful quality to her designs. The simple shapes in bold colours will liven up winter outfits – and who wouldn’t smile opening these on Christmas morning? Look out for her fun home accessories and Christmas decorations too.

Tory Long


Tory Long’s handcrafted pieces are a wonderful mix of modern geometric shapes with classic stones and pearls. Originally from Belfast, Tory is now based out of a studio in Dublin where she makes all of her pieces by hand. Her Perle Spike Necklace with freshwater pearls has caught our eye. Give it to someone special this Christmas.

Scribble & Stone


Inspired by architecture and geometry, Scribble & Stone’s designer Jenny Kiernan creates two ongoing collections for her brand, ‘S&S Minimals’ – a very delicate collection in precious metals designed for everyday wear – and ‘S&S Statement’ – which features more fashion-forward designs crafted from interesting materials like laser-cut Perspex, fringing and leather. All pieces are finished by hand at her design studio in Dublin. We love the 70s Statement Fringe Earrings – perfect for the party season.
