Eddie graduated with an honours degree in Fine and Applied Art: Silversmithing and Jewellery from the University of Ulster in 2006.
His work incorporates contemporary jewellery methods and practices with solid, traditional blacksmithing techniques.
“My work is an exploration of structure and movement – industrial elements infused with organic forms. I have taken the concept of a ring as a conventional wearable object and extended its structural boundaries to work in harmony with the rings aesthetic.”
Eddie works to commission from his studio in Holywood, Co. Down.
