Names-Lineage

Names-Lineage

Lineage is the inaugural collection by Names Dublin. Created by Clare Grennan and Laura Caffrey the aim was to create a brand of jewellery that combined both of their skills and personalities as makers. Working in a modular way each item has been formed by hand in brass to exacting standards, worked to contrasting matte and polished finishes and plated in hard wearing 18 carat rose and yellow gold. While incorporating a truly modern aesthetic, the collection retains the warmth and tactility of the handmade.

As this first collection was such personal one, Clare and Laura chose to name each piece after the women in their families. Starting with themselves and working back through their respective mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers. Honouring these ordinary women who are essentially the origin of this collection.
