Jill Graham Jewellery
Dromara (Co Down)
Irish jewellery designer Jill Graham studied Silversmith and Jewellery at Loughborough University. During her study, Jill completed an apprenticeship with a Goldsmiths in Derry.
After graduating in 2002, Jill went on to work for a Belfast company called Craftworks. Spending a year with this company, she learnt about various aspects of jewellery design.
Since then she has worked as a self-employed artist and jeweller. Among her finest moments has been in 2013 when she was commissioned to make and present lapel pins to the world leaders attending the G8 summit of that year.
Jill’s fascination of organic structures are used to inform her unique contemporary jewellery pieces. Strong, bold shapes stress the qualities of the inclusions of texture and form. She draws inspiration from surface treatment of nature, and elements of plant life where patterns made can make the most beautiful designs.
