Oonagh is a jeweller based in Totnes who specialises in creating handset gemstone pieces. She takes strong recognisable forms from around the world and works them into jewellery that is enhanced by the body. Jewellery is the keeper of stories that are gathered as it is worn and Oonagh creates long lasting pieces that will follow you wherever life may lead.

Craftmanship is key to the Made by Oonagh collections and Oonagh researches and masters age old jewellery techniques from across the globe, which are then brought to life through her contemporary designs.

All of the gemstones in the Made by Oonagh collections are natural and they are individually chosen based on how they change with the light and react to their surroundings. Sterling silver, gold, copper, and brass are used to compliment the beauty of the gemstones.

Oonagh’s first taste of jewellery making was carving jade and panning for gold in New Zealand. Now she works from her sunny garden studio in Totnes, Devon, an area which offers constant inspiration throughout the seasons. Visits to the studio are welcomed by appointment.

I commissioned Oonagh to make a necklace for a friend’s birthday. I couldn’t have asked for a nicer design and I felt like Oonagh really took the time to understand what I wanted. My friend was delighted with the necklace!


I did a ring making workshop with Oonagh to make a present for my partner. It was a fun afternoon and with Oonagh’s help I was able to create something personal as a gift.
