Wild Atlantic Gems on the Wild Atlantic Way

November 6th, 2014.

Looking for somewhere special to buy that special something for someone special?

We were delighted recently to see the Wild Atlantic Gems craft trail mentioned in The Southern Star.  Journalist Jackie Keogh (follow @KeoghJackie on twitter) brought news of this initiative which aims to highlight quality craft and design outlets to be discovered along the West Cork segment of the now world-famous Wild Atlantic Way.

Naturally Jorg’s is a member of the trail!

Jorg's Goldsmith Studio, Crookhaven  -a Wild Atlantic GemAs a designer and creator of jewellery made from gold, silver and gemstones, Jorg’s earrings, rings, necklaces and other pieces have been gaining a local, national and international reputation since Jorg first opened the studio in idyllic Crookhaven on Mizen Head in 1998.

As the WAG website puts it:

“Wild Atlantic Gems is a medley of unusual, independently owned shops from Kinsale to Kenmare. Each is a unique gem where handpicked style, perfect presents and friendly personal service are the order of the day. Take the opportunity to chat with the owners who are happy to share their expertise and local knowledge.”

If you are a lover of finely crafted things you’ll be able to find homewares, jewellery, knitwear, ceramics, accessories, gifts and crafts of every kind as you make your way along one of the most beautiful parts of the Wild Atlantic Way.  Whether in potter and ceramicist Etain Hickey’s lovely gift shop in Clonakilty, Annabel Langrish’s Heron Gardens and Gallery in Ahakista or The Catherine Hammond Gallery in Glengariff – visitors and local shoppers alike will be sure to find beautiful items on this trail.  A special word too for Whyte Books in Schull – a truly special bookshop.

But please do visit the WAG website here for more information about all of the craft outlets that make up the trail – map here.
