NCAD Graduate Exhibition: Jewels That Sing

NCAD’s newest graduates from Jewellery & Objects have whipped up some phenomenal work, melding playful colour palettes with thought-provoking concepts (and superbly-sculpted forms to boot).

Unsurprisingly, my attention was seized by a trio of fellow texture fiends, whose collections croon with tactility: Caoimhe O’Toole’s “When I Grow Up” (channeling childhood memories and mementoes through acrylic/wool creations), Ali Moya’s “No-nee-nee” (celebrating botanical splendour and wildflower games of summers past) and Ellen McQuaile’s “What Is Left Behind?” (which sees thin sterling silver warped by the weight of emotions tied to loss).

Catch their incredible works at the college’s Graduate Exhibition, running Friday 7 until Sunday 16 — NCAD Design Building, Thomas Street. / @madebyalimoya / @ellenmcquaile.jewellery
