Sterling Silver Shore Earrings by Berina Kelly, Galway
Berina's work is the reason I got into dangly earrings! I love the simplicity of her designs and the easy to wear shapes that are still quite edgy.
Berina works with rolled layers of sterling silver that she drills and etches into. The Shore range is definitely influenced by her love of the sea and life in the West.
After studying to be a Goldsmith with the Design Crafts Council Ireland, Berina went on to finish her degree in Fine and Applied Art at the Belfast College of Art. She has worked nationally and internationally with a number of goldsmiths and set up her own workshop in Galway in 2000.
Berina designs and makes exhibition and collectable pieces in precious metals. Her diffusion collections blend elements of her work in sterling silver, for everyday wear.
