Celebrating the best of Irish made

Ella Green has been shortlisted in the inaugural Irish Made Awards from Irish Country Magazine!

The awards are celebrating the artisans and producers making 100% Irish work.

We have a thriving creative island under our feet and its heart beats stronger thanks to initiatives like these.

I want to extend a huge THANK YOU to all involved including Guaranteed Irish and good luck to ALL the shortlisted makers in each category! If y'all could take a moment to vote Ella Green in the Jewellery category (voting link here) I would be very grateful!

In this post I also want to celebrate my friends and those I admire in each of the categories, starting with Jewellery of course! Even though we are technically in competition, I do NOT think that way. I believe that good design needs to be celebrated, elevated and fêted at every turn and by our peers in particular!

It is honestly so hard to pick my faves in the jewellery category but of the lovely people I have been fortunate enough to meet in person or come across professionally, I love the work and energy of Capulet & Montague, Edge Only and of course my fellow Design Yard jewellers Martina Hamilton and Lynsey deBurca.

And here are the Ella Green picks for all of the other categories - so much talent here!

Home - Gilded Hound

Food - Hazel Mountain Chocolate 

Textiles - Ceadogan

Gift - Homebird.ie

Beauty - Waters + Wild

Furniture - Elements of Action

Accessories - Ciara Silke

Fashion - Orla Langan

Now get voting everyone! Voting closes 6 August 2017.
