Newgrange Jewellery

Newgrange Jewellery

Dorothy Fletcher Bentley grew up in Ireland, very near the Newgrange Megalithic tomb. Having visited many times throughout her childhood, the tri-spiral pattern has always captivated her. A Graphic Designer by profession, she learned the art of wax carving as a hobby initially and now specialises in sculpting Newgrange-inspired pieces such as the jewellery you see here. All of Dorothy’s work is created using the traditional ‘Lost Wax’ technique of carving a piece of wax using a spirit lamp and wax files. This results in the tactile raised relief pattern you can see and feel in her truly hand-carved work—just like the exquisite patterns made by ancient Irish craftsmen. She outsources her wax pieces for sterling silver casting and personally finishes every piece in her home studio. Her jewellery is cast in .925 sterling silver and hallmarked by the Assay office, Dublin.
