I live and work in Sligo, a county of extraordinary natural beauty and creative wealth. I have a small family team of master goldsmiths and, together, we have created a variety of award-winning jewellery collections. Many are now stocked by Ireland’s most exclusive retailers including Arnotts Irish Jewellery Collective, Avoca Stores, Design Yard, House of Ireland, Kilkenny Design, Kilkenny Shop, Steensons of Belfast and The Cat & The Moon.
My designs are inspired by the wonderful, ever-changing Atlantic coastal landscape where I live and more recently by the discovery of my ancestral ties with Dernish Island, just off the north Sligo coast.
My collections are available through my website Martina Hamilton, and my shop The Cat and the Moon, at 4 Castle Street Sligo, where we also stock the finest Irish artisan design and craft handmade by studio craft makers living and working in Ireland.
In 2011, I opened the Hamilton Gallery, which hosts a continuous programme of solo and group exhibitions by Ireland’s leading contemporary visual artists.
