I have always dreamed about owning my own creative space to showcase a vibrant range of contemporary design, traditional craft, individual makers, small design studios and other makers I had found on my travels around Ireland.
The focus was always on self production and quality of design.
This dream came true in the summer of 2017 when I opened up Sevenoaks and Steele in my new adopted hometown of Bray in County Wicklow.
I started with a small range of my own jewellery, called in a couple of favours from designers I knew and took a leap of faith.
Three years down the line I'm expanding online where I will be able to offer my customers an exciting range of beautiful, thoughtful products and finally realize some of the collaborations I have been working on.
