NI Silver (Ruth McEwan-Lyon)

Ruth has an immense pride and passion from being ‘born and bred’ in Northern Ireland. After living overseas, she wanted to ‘showcase’ Northern Ireland around the world and she expresses this desire via her jewellery designs.

Ruth’s ‘Mi-NI’ collection captures the ‘Land of the Giants’ and shrinks it to unique pieces of jewellery detailing our famous landmarks. Ruth’s plan is to represent each of the 6 counties enabling all of us to have a ‘little piece of home’ with us at all times.

Ruth has travelled extensively for over 20 years, living as far away as Malaysia, before the ‘call of home’ brought her back to Holywood and the joy of creating. Her work reflects Northern Irish architecture (although she will undertake bespoke commissions), however, she simply loves connecting with people and sharing her passion of all that is good about living here. Ruth has managed to do this very uniquely, through her jewellery designs.

Her work is hallmarked by the Assay Office in London and can be engraved using traditional or laser techniques. She prides herself on providing a level of customer service that befits the quality of her work and is more than happy to undertake tailored courses or corporate orders, where required.
