Mark Wilkes

Mark Wilkes

We are delighted to include Mark Wilkes to our team of goldsmith tutors and designers.

Mark has always been interested in fine craftsmanship. As a keen watchmaker, clock restorer and luthier, he decided to take some time away from his career as a software engineer to devote himself full-time to learning the art of designing and making jewellery with the support of the tutors at The School of Jewellery Ireland .

He is inspired by prehistory and the aesthetics and techniques of watchmaking, especially those of the 18th and 19th centuries, and tries to combine goldsmithing with watchmaking to create jewellery that pays homage to the past while still being contemporary.
