In a fully equipped workshop like ours it is possible to make anything you want. Mostly customers come to us with ideas and we work with them on finalising the overall design. So it’s always interesting when you get an unusual request like this!

This is corksilver.com, the online presence for Sean Carroll & Sons Jewellers, of Rutland street, Cork and The East Village, Douglas, Cork and Cork being in Ireland. We wanted to make something quite contemporary but using the more traditional silverrmithing techniques and finishes. The piece is then finished by planishing the metal which involves hammering the surface with highly polished hammers.

Commissions | Cork Silver

It looks simply enough to plait some silver wire but the challenge was to get the silver to behave like the leather that is used in the original. The medals are all cut by hand including the logos which are cut out by hand and then soldered on to the medal. These silver medals are being presented by the Cork City Council and the Cork County Council on 13th May 2009.
