Macdara Ó Graham
Macdara Ó Graham is an independent artist goldsmith who specialises in creating one-off precious fine jewellery.
Each handmade piece is made with precious metals combined with techniques such as fine gemstone setting and micro-pavé utilising unique precious and coloured gemstones. He works from his studio in Mullaghban in County Armagh, Ireland.
The concept for the brand name and logo is inspired by Macdara’s first name, an old Gaelic name meaning ‘Son of the Oak’.
This symbolism permeates through the brand ethos evoking ideas of ‘nature’, ‘strength’ and ‘longevity’- the oak being the primordial king of the woods.
“I believe strongly that we are all uniquely individual and each piece of jewellery I design should reflect that sense of individually and personality. That is my main intention with each piece that I make whether designing and creating spontaneously or when working closely with a client to design and make their perfect piece of heirloom jewellery.” –Macdara
As well as creating one-off pieces, Macdara often remodels existing jewellery and gemstones owned and cherished by the client to create a new piece incorporating specific design elements and symbolism personal to the client.
