Jewellery designer Avril Manderson has always been a bit of a Black Sheep! As an established jewellery artist known for her quirky commissioned designs, she launched the Fresh Fleeces range in 2011.

As the company has grown, we have retained the same quality and attention to detail that was the essence of the original range. Experienced silversmiths make every piece of jewellery by hand to ensure our high standards are maintained.

We are based in Northern Ireland, a part of the world that has no shortage of sheep, and we are spoilt for choice with the range of animals we have to model our designs on.

We have recently added some Highland Cattle to our collection and their shaggy coats were perfect for the Fresh Fleeces treatment. We have many more animal friends to join them so do return to The Irish Workshop to meet them!
