About Us

Aesthetic Adornments

Handmade in Ireland

 All our pieces are made and designed by visual artist/maker Frances McGonigle in small bespoke quantities at our Ox Mountain studio in rural Mayo, Ireland. The Ox are low pre-ice age mountains with a wealth of megalithic tombs and wonderfully diverse landscape formations, textures and flora, all of which influence the patterning and dyeing that forms the basis of our textile jewellery.

Our processes, contemporary batik and shibori techniques, result in super-lightweight lusciously hued jewellery that is modern, unique and beautiful.

We only use remnant material, some of which is recent waste off-cuts/dead-stock, some of which is older much-used and repaired linens/cottons and silk. We finish our pieces using eco pine resin. All our packaging is recycled/recyclable. Our aim is to be as sustainable in our making as possible.

We love making our jewellery. We hope you love wearing it.
