Aidan Smyth is an Irish artist and jewellery designer. Fundamental to his practice is the overlap between fine art and design. Since 2010 he has been focusing predominantly on his jewellery collection. A native of Dublin, he first began making jewellery while a student at Grennan Mills, a multi-disciplinary craft college in Thomastown, Co Kilkenny.
From here he went on to gain a degree in Fine Art from Crawford College of Art and Design, Co.Cork. Operating from his studio in Co. Leitrim Aidan draws heavily from his interests in archaeology, science, history, and sociology. He designs and handcrafts pieces in a multitude of materials including copper, brass, silver, gold, plastic, and wood. Aidan also makes pieces on a one-to-one commission basis. He carefully considers his client's individual style and circumstance, to produce pieces that are both unique and personal.
