Eimear Vize

My mission as a jewellery designer/maker is to enhance a person’s unique individuality through a careful selection of materials, design choices and fabrication processes. I enjoy incorporating traditional goldsmith skills with new technology to create jewellery that will resonate emotionally with the wearer and stand the test of time as statements of personality and aesthetic choice. I am captivated by the beauty of balance, symbolism and story, and strive to bring these elements into my jewellery making. The process is key as my designs continue to develop while at the bench, allowing me to respond intuitively to materials.

About Eimear Vize

Eimear Vize is an award-winning designer/maker of timeless contemporary jewellery that embodies the values of craftmanship, authenticity and empowerment. Working from her studio just outside the beautiful village of Inistioge, she hand-makes each piece using a range of techniques, including traditional goldsmithing, lost wax casting, wire crochet and weaving with precious metal. She is also proud to state that all of the gold and silver used in her jewellery is 100% recycled.

As an amateur gemologist of more than 20 years, Eimear has amassed a substantial collection of gemstones, including unusual and striking gems that are not typically available in jewellery stores. Her gemstones are sourced from a handful of small family-run lapidary businesses in India, Pakistan and Indonesia.

In 2022, Eimear was presented with the Craft & Design Business of the Year Award by the Kilkenny Chamber of Commerce. She has also been a finalist in the Irish Design Awards and the Irish Made Awards.

Eimear is a member of the Design & Crafts Council Ireland. She is also a founding member of the recently established Irish Jewellers and Silversmiths Guild.
