Recently I wrote about our trip to Dublin to exhibit at Showcase Ireland in the RDS. It was a great show and gave us the chance to meet lots of new and existing customers as well as catch up with other makers. Our new collection was really well received and we were delighted with all the great feedback.
One of the lovely things that happened to Claddagh Design at Showcase was that our Torc cufflinks were awarded the honor of being selected amongst the top 50 products in the entire show! This was a massive deal to us as there were so many amazing products at the show and the competition in the jewelry category was huge. Our Torc cufflinks were exhibited in the winners area along with the other successful products. Here's a picture of the display.
The other great thing to happen to Claddagh Design that our jewelry was featured in the Crafts Council of Ireland's 'Trends Area'. This was featured at the main entrance of the show and featured work from different makers that embodied the various fashion trends of 2012.
So with all this success we've started working on new Torc designs for our women's range. I will post some images of the sketches and new designs next week, as always we would love to hear what you think.
