Céline Traynor graduated in Fine Craft Design from the University of Ulster and set up a jewellery business in Dublin in 1997. Thoroughly contemporary in style, Céline’s jewellery designs in silver and gold reflect her love of pure shape and form – they appeal to those with a minimalist aesthetic. In her own words, ‘taking a studied, almost mathematical approach, I reduce the various forms to a balanced, geometric shape. The finished result is simple jewellery with a highly individual appearance.’
Although her jewellery might look abstract, the inspiration is down to earth – bridges, wallpaper and tile design, handwriting. Music plays a large part in her designs. A favoured way of working is to design a link that lends itself to necklaces, pendants, bracelets, earrings, cufflinks. rings and brooches. Céline loves solving the problems of how to connect, link, pin, hang.
