Small wonders

  • • Ann creates timeless heirloom pieces
  • • Jewellery is part of celebrating life for her
  • • She focuses on crafting the minute details

The day after Ann Chapman finished her degree in European Studies, she signed up for a week of jewellery making and never looked back. She enrolled in a range of courses and completed an apprenticeship. After this, she secured one of 12 coveted places on the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland’s goldsmithing course. This intensive two-year training is evident in the quality of her pieces. Chapman spent time in Paris and was inspired by the beautifully presented, bijoux shops and boutiques. She established Stonechat Jewellers with these memories in mind. A Stonechat is a little-known Irish bird. It is a small thing of great beauty, which is exactly what each piece of Stonechat jewellery encapsulates.

Stepping Stones gold and diamond round pendant

Ann was inspired by people’s ability to keep moving forward in life, and she captures that beautiful strength in her Stepping Stones collection. This 18ct gold pendant can reflect a quiet, personal celebration or be a treasured memory of overcoming adversity as each ‘step’, no matter how big or small, reflects progress and determination – a truly symbolic piece!
