I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
am a jewellery designer and papermaker based in the Workhouse Studios, Ireland. I combine hand-made paper with fine silver and seeds to create delicate, highy detailed sculptural jewellery and decorative pieces.

Drawing my inspiration from the garden, I focus particularly on the late summer and autumn period. I am especially fascinated by the delicate qualities of seedpods and the miniature elements that are seeds. When plants and flowers come towards the end of their life cycle their petals and leaves become fragile and translucent. Leaf veins and plant skeletons appear and the plants become beautiful, ghost-like creations of their former selves. Yet these frail beings hold within themselves the precious seeds for next year’s growth.

I have chosen my materials to reflect the fragile and precious nature of these plants. They best translate my fascination with the translucency, intricate engineerings and ephemeral beauty that exist in nature.

I graduated from NCAD, Dublin in 2008 with a degree (1.1) in Craft Design-metals. Later that year I co-established the Workhouse Studios, a new craft collective based in Kilmacthomas, Co. Waterford. Workhouse Studios is built on the philosophy of design-led, innovative products, including glass, ceramics, jewellery and textiles.

Hi Sabrina,

Thanks very much for the friend request and the lovely comment! I absolutely love the handmade papers that you use in your pieces: I learned papermaking at university and loved it: it's great to see it combined with metal and used in such whimsical ways!

Hello Sabrina,


Welcome to crafthaus, the network for fine craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us! Your crafthaus membership is valid through June 15, 2012.

Please look around and add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions. Crafthaus is a participatory sport!

Please note that ALL images sent to the website editor are vetted to assure a measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Our members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the photos have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light. From the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however, with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! :-)

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor@live.com anytime, I will do my best to be of help.

I hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.

Again: Welcome !

Brigitte Martin
Crafthaus Editor
