Miriam Wade is an Irish goldsmith and designer from Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. It was her love of creating three-dimensional sculptural pieces as a child that encouraged Miriam to study jewellery and metalwork at NCAD in Dublin.
In 2014 Miriam started out designing her first jewellery collection inspired by the historical landscape of the midlands. Since then she has further expanded her collection and created silver and gold ranges based on the connections we make with people in life, the close bonds we form with people and our surrounding landscape.
Growing up in Mullingar she was constantly surrounded by the lakes of Westmeath and the beautiful historical landscape of the midlands. As a child she would often spend a Sunday afternoon with her family by the lake shore skimming stones and accidentally falling in for a swim. These childhood memories have slowly developed into different themes that have inspired her designs.
Miriam’s design style can be defined as a combination of organic pattern and geometric form. With these amalgamated design styles her jewellery pieces keep in line with simple but modern design that remains timeless and elegant. All pieces are made from precious metals and carry the stamp of authenticity from the Irish Assay Office.
