Tracy Gilbert is a Dublin-based jewellery designer and maker of hand-crafted jewellery.
Tracy is immensely proud of her Irish heritage. She was educated through the Irish language and has always been inspired by the rich artistic and mythological history of Ireland.
Sites like Newgrange directly influence her jewellery designs. As a child, she was in awe of how Newgrange allowed the light to shine through its chambers on the winter solstice to spectacular effect. Through combining precious metals with translucent materials, Tracy attempts to recreate the magic of Newgrange to allow the light to shine through her pieces to reveal Celtic spirals (triskele). This can be seen in her Growing Home and Children of Lir coloured collections.
Tracy’s aim is to intertwine her Irish pride with imagination to create beautiful original jewellery designs that reflect Ireland’s artistic and mythological heritage.​ She particularly likes to explore and reimagine existing Celtic symbolism to create pieces that have a special meaning attaching to them.
