Irish Jewellery designer Katie McCay, an Athlone native, has been designing and creating unique and meaningful jewellery inspired by Ireland’s ancient past over a decade.
Her fascination with ancient writing and symbolism led to her to study Celtic Archaeology at NUI Galway where she also developed a keen interest in metalworking.
Her attraction to Ogham, combined with her craftsmanship in metalworking allowed her turn her fascination into a passion and so the Ogham Treasure Collection was established in 2012.
Each piece of jewellery in the Ogham Treasure Collection represents a word or letter that has special meaning in ancient Celtic writing.
Crafted in silver, the pieces are designed and made using traditional and modern jewellery making techniques forging a unique connection to an ancient tradition.
Katie is a member of The Design and Crafts Council of Ireland & Design Ireland.
