Laurie Gaffney is a Jewellery Designer
Laurie Gaffney is a jewellery designer/maker based in Bangor, County Down and currently has a private studio set up in Boom! Studios, Main Street. She graduated from The University of Ulster in 2015, with a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Applied Art, specialising in Silversmithing and Jewellery.
Laurie creates bespoke enamelled earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets using a mix of copper, silver. The colour inspiration for the enamel comes from growth and decay in nature and in particular, the moods and colour changes of the seasons. She enjoys the unique colour results achieved by kiln and torch firing enamels. Producing original and individual pieces of jewellery, she also undertakes private commissions.
Laurie partakes in a number of craft fairs throughout the year and has stock in a number of local craft shops, including The Craft Room in Comber and We Are Woven in Banbridge.
