Meet The Maker

Marcus Ó Broin

I am a European trained goldsmith specializing in handmade jewelry. Working in gold, platinum and silver, I utilize diamonds and coloured gem stones in my jewelry.

The Design Process

Having a piece of custom jewelry made is exciting but can be overwhelming when trying to decide on a design. My aim is to make this process as easy and fun as possible.

All design work starts with a conversation to help me understand what jewelry you would like made. Maybe you inherited some beloved jewelry from your grandmother or want your engagement ring redesigned. Perhaps it will have a very significant personal meaning, or you prefer to wear your jewelry only on special occasions.

After I establish what I will be making, I start with some rough sketches to get some ideas down on paper and see if anything appeals to your taste.

When one or more ideas peek your interest I can elaborate more on these sketches and draw them to scale to give you a more accurate idea of what the final design will look like. 

We can go back and forth as many times as you wish, it is important to me that you are fully happy with your jewelry design. 

Feel free to contact me with any questions or enquiries you might have about jewelry design or repair. Even if you have no idea what you would like made, I am more than happy to sit down with you and start playing with ideas and sketches until you get inspired.
