Garvan Traynor Jewellery
Garvan Traynor studied at the University of Ulster and, following graduation, carried out a year long apprenticeship with Trudi Van Schriek Goldschmiede, Maastricht.
He has worked as a Senior Goldsmith for The Steensons and Sharman D Neill (Lunns). Garvan Traynor Jewellery has been established for 4 years. My creative process is about engaging and collaborating with the client. Every person is different and every piece I produce reflects that; this builds a constantly creative cycle.
Garvan involves clients closely in the design process to ensure that the end product exceeds expectations. The business specialises in private commissions, designing one-off pieces of contemporary jewellery using a variety of metals and precious stones, including platinum and diamonds.
