Welcome to The School of Jewellery Ireland - Dublin City

Welcome to The School of Jewellery Ireland - Dublin City

"Our studios are custom built using traditional cabinet making techniques and workshop design practice. We use the finest high specification tools, materials and equipment and prioritise our student's and tutor's creative and professional environment. Each student is provided with their own customised workbench, specialist hand tools, micro motor and personal precision instruments. We also now offer a tool room where we house our larger tools, ie Enamelling Kilns, Polishing Motor, Sandblaster, Ultrasonic, Pin Polisher, Rhodium Plating Machine to name a few. Our tutors are all active in the Jewellery Industry and we have combined trade experience of approximately 195 years (amongst our 7 tutors) We have built a reputation for excellence without cutting any corners in our training of potentially 'lost skills'. " Deirdre O'Donnell - The School of Jewellery Ireland ©2019


"I have the greatest respect for what Deirdre O'Donnell is doing at The School of Jewellery Ireland. Basic skills, well taught, are the cornerstone of good jewellery making and there is no quick fix. Really good skills are harder to acquire. What Deirdre is doing is great for the trade and for those that want to learn with a real depth of ability."- Jane Huston - DCCOI Jewellery & Skills Course Tutor for 14 years.


Brilliant work, so important to teach these skills and so rewarding for both sides… if only there were more Deirdres. So good to see, I have such admiration for what you are doing.” Theo Fennell - Society Jeweller London.
