Silver Necklace with Lava Beads by Eddie Doherty Image: Silver Necklace with Lava Beads by Eddie Doherty

Eddie Doherty graduated with an honours degree in Fine and Applied Art: Silversmithing and Jewellery from the University of Ulster in 2006. From his studio in Holywood, Eddie creates unique pieces of jewellery for both commission and exhibition. 

His work incorporates the integration of differing approaches and techniques, aiming to subtly subvert traditional jewellery forms whilst always respecting the traditional ethos of the Goldsmith. He creates finely finished forms that demonstrate this contrast between functional aesthetic concepts and contemporary designs, with traditional work processes.

Silver Necklace with Lava Beads is included in the collection of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
