SÉAMUS GILL JEWELLERY
Séamus Gill uses traditional silversmithing skills to create his contemporary silver jewellery designs.
With a hammer and anvil he moves silver, capturing that beautiful movement in an elegant sculptural piece of jewellery. With skilful forming and unique sculptural designs his jewellery has an emphasis on the wonderful tactile quality in the final finish. His jewellery is recognisable by his signature sculptural style, often balancing a highly polished section against a subtle texture.
“Irish design at its best. These highly polished silver pieces, some plated in 22 carat gold are stunning.”
SÉAMUS GILL SILVERSMITHING
Séamus Gill uses traditional silversmithing skills that have been passed down through the generations to create his silversmithing work. He has the unique qualities of being a highly skilled silversmith and sensitive designer allowing him to create exceptional pieces of silversmithing.
As is traditional with silversmithing, much of his work is bespoke and made to commission, often for Awards and Presentation pieces. But he also makes contemporary silver tabletop pieces in the traditional of fine dining that are available to order and occasionally for exhibitions.

SÉAMUS GILL SCULPTURE
Séamus Gill’s makes sculptures in sheet bronze that have evolved from his silversmithing work. Each piece is cut from a flat sheet of bronze then formed with the skilful use of a hammer and anvil into an elegant three dimensional sculpture.
Each piece is finished by patinating the bronze in soft muted colours, with selective areas highly polished and gold plated.
“Sleek sinuous and sculptural forms….nothing short of stunning”
Gemma Tipton, The Irish Times
