A Day in the life of a Jewellery Designer

May 31, 2018

This week we’ve decided to catch up with our Jewellery designer Nora to get an insight into her job here at Newbridge Silverware.

When and how did you join the team here at Newbridge Silverware?

Newbridge first appeared on my radar in 2013.  At the time, I was a student at NCAD completing my degree in jewellery design. I had just participated in the jewellery design competition that was organised for the students. The competition gave us the opportunity to have our creations transformed into bespoke collections by Newbridge Silverware. My work impressed the team here so much that just a short time later I found myself my dream internship here. I loved every minute of it! So much so, that five years later and here I am as a permanent jewellery designer.

What is a typical day like for you in Newbridge Silverware? 

Each day is different here and that is something that I really love about my job. I could be working on a lot of different projects at the same time, such as bringing my ideas to life by sketching my designs and researching the latest jewellery trends. I spend a lot of my time on the manufacturing facility, checking on the progress of my latest designs with the production team. The support and expertise of the manufacturing team contributes so much to the final outcome. Continue Reading

A Summer Wedding

May 14, 2018

If you have decided to make this summer extra special by saying I do, the countdown is on! We know that planning a wedding can be overwhelming, especially as the big day looms and your Pinterest boards multiply… so we’ve put together a Wedding Inspiration Guide to help you with those little details that make all the difference.

Wedding Favours

Wedding favours are not an essential part of a wedding, but they are becoming increasingly popular with couples who are using them to add a touch of personality to the day, giving gifts that reflect themselves as a couple. Favours don’t have to be a big expense. They can be bought, grown, baked, or handmade with love. Favours can be as simple as miniature chocolates (and lets face it, who doesn’t love chocolate?) or personalised treat bags. Some couples are making the extra effort in 2018, offering their guests welcome bags filled with mini essentials such as sun-cream, umbrellas and water. Including a handwritten note or a photo is a thoughtful keepsake that will make your gift a true original.
