Gemma O Leary

  • INNER ISLAND was launched in April, 2015 by Jeweller Gemma O Leary. Through various courses & internships in Scotland, Canada and Dublin Gemma gained the knowledge and skill needed to realise her dream of starting her own company and creating pieces of quality and beauty with a heavy emphasis on design.

    Gemma is inspired by geometrical forms, frames and structures and is currently exploring jewellery as a sculptural wearable element. The ethos of the brand is to bring a refined, stubble approach to design, starting with simple shapes and introducing unexpected details, with the intention of creating pieces that will surprise and delight.

    All our pieces are handcrafted in Dublin, Ireland using the ancient art of metalworking and combining it with modern technologies.

    I spent many years searching for something that inspired me. I dabbled in different careers in different countries but never put a heart and soul into anything, until I picked up a hammer and made my first ring. From that moment I was hooked. I knew instantly that this was it. The medium I was searching for. Im happiest when I'm at my work-bench creating.
