I love to create jewellery that stimulates the imagination! Unusual angles, rings that taper with gems off-centre and earrings that are inverted, mirrors of each other. It makes me wonder about my inner world and the designs that pop up into my consciousness, demanding to be created into a piece of jewellery.
I’m Katie Woollett, the designer and creator of “Original Strands”. I design and make a range of Irish contemporary handmade jewellery that includes a variety of chain necklaces, earrings, pendants and rings in three distinctive collections. Everything is made in my Dublin studio. (See My Collections page).
I am a member of the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCI)
”Katie Woollett of “Original Strands”, makes jewellery that is so novel and attractive, that you want to own some. Her Kite 2 Silver Earrings, which I recently acquired, are a real pleasure to wear. I really like the fact that these earrings are not identical, because they reflect diversity, which I love”
”I love knowing that my Fluid collection earrings are totally unique and made locally!”
