Mairead deBlaca, is the founder of the multi award-winning jewellery brand deBlaca Jewellery. Her designs are first created as paintings before being turned into pieces of jewellery. Her painting, Large Yellow Flower, was the inspiration for her jewellery range after so many friends and family commented that you could pick the flower from the canvas and wear it.
Mairead studied history and archaeology in University College Cork, and worked and travelled extensively throughout the USA, Africa and Asia, gathering inspiration as she went. She is driven to design gold and silver jewellery that is elegant and simply beautiful jewellery. For Mairead, jewellery represents a story and can capture a moment in time, from the birth of a child, marking a big birthday or celebrating a wedding. Jewellery is used to mark these occasions.
“Jewellery connects us to our past and is used to create the future we want. We create gold and silver jewellery that is elegant, simple and beautiful. Each piece of jewellery is seen as a piece of art and can be worn from day into night.”
