Gavin Friday opens Amárach, an exhibition of high end jewellery

Gavin Friday will be opening Amárach, an exhibition of high end jewellery by Irelands’ most acclaimed goldsmiths in Cork this Thursday (September 19th) at 6.30pm. The opening will be hosted by Tuula Harrington of Designworks Studio.

Amárach is an Exhibition of High-end Jewellery by Irish Goldsmiths with a dual sense of value, emphasizing more than the valuable materials used, but also skilled workmanship and creativity. Working together on a common theme of depth and beauty, we aim to showcase a collection that will blow away the public and many misconceived ideas of hand crafted jewellery.

One could say we very much so ‘threw out the baby with the bath water’.
