Bernice Kelly

Design Philosophy

‘Macha is about a quiet rebellion, not ‘beautiful’, but not without nobility either, rough and warm-hearted and full of ripe character. It’s witty, tenacious and defiant with an air of old fashioned peace…. ‘

Created and owned by Irish designer Bernice Kelly, the Macha Jewellery line is influenced by the vintage fashions researched in her career as a fashion designer. Precious metals are used, and every piece is handmade or hand finished and antiqued for a previously worn appearance. Pieces are often created by accident, relishing in the unwanted, for an anarchic rock n’ roll feel.
