One of a kind jewellery inspired by nature, magic and folklore.

Dog Star Silver Jewellery is designed and handmade in Belfast by Louisa McCartney - where she lives with her husband and two little girls.  Inspiration comes from the landscape and history of Northern Ireland - with a little bit of stargazing thrown in there too - and all designs are made using eco silver, an environmentally friendly raw material which is produced from 100% recycled scrap metal.

"Back in the wintery depths of 2020, I decided to share the jewellery I had been secretly making at home for friends and family with everyone else - and Dog Star Silver was born.  It gets its name from Sirius (AKA The Dog Star) one of the brightest stars in the night sky, as making it helped to spark my imagination during what was a particularly dark time for us all.  I started back then using silver clay and following some training I now mix that technique with traditional silversmithing.  This all takes place in my home - either the kitchen or my tiny under stairs studio - so it really is handmade from scratch.
I now teach silver clay beginners classes and love passing on the joys of creating with it to anyone who'll listen!  So if it's something you're interested in check out my events page for the next available dates."
