“I belong everywhere I go, no matter where it is, or who it I am with, as long as I never betray myself. The minute I become who you want me to be, in order to fit in and make sure people like me, is the moment I no longer belong anywhere.”

– Brene Brown

Home. There’s no place like it.

My work is native to Cork (Ireland) at present, where I have lived since 2005 and yet… I carry my heritage with me wherever I happen to go.

So, what can you expect? You might be wondering what it is you’ll find. The answer is: everything. And then some. This is the new home of NDS Jewellery but, most importantly, it is the place where I share all my creative pursuits. I will write about my interests and everything that moves me, from current affairs to films, books, music, art, culture… You can view this as a kind of treasure box and you’ll truly never quite know what you’ll find, at any given moment. It might be just the thing you didn’t know you were looking for! I keep coming back to the idea of serendipity or synchronicity. If nothing else, I hope you’ll find a bit of that here. The “something” that you had hoped to find or see or read more about. The kind words of encouragement, the thing you wanted to learn a little more about, the entertaining read, the moment of recognition and finding yourself to be seen and understood. Whatever it is you find here, it’s always the story behind it that matters.
