About Jorg Uschkamp
Jorg is an exceptional and experienced goldsmith.
Originally from Germany he made a radical life change following a few short holidays in West Cork. It’s difficult to explain how the magic of Crookhaven changed a major decision into a natural choice. Suffice to say it was a choice made by the heart and Jorg simply listened and followed. Since making that move in 1998, Jorg has been designing and creating exquisite jewellery on the Mizen Peninsula in his West Cork Studio, his adopted homeland.
The remote location of his studio has influenced his work and the traditional methods he uses. It has also added to its exclusivity. Over the years he has built up a loyal following of discerning customers, buying his new designs and requesting bespoke commissions for wedding or anniversary rings.
Creativity has always been embedded in Jorg’s life. His love of different mediums and design eventually led him to train as a goldsmith. Jorg has an extraordinary eye for detail and finish.
He is deeply passionate about the sea, and the Atlantic waves feed his soul. The influences are evident in his work. His love of surfing has inspired him to create the Crookhaven Surfboard Pendant. And then to top it all off, this beautiful place is where he met and fell in love with his wife Anne and they now work side by side to bring you this shop window to a special corner of Ireland.
It would be lovely to welcome you to Jorg’s studio by the pier in Crookhaven on your way to Mizen Head. In the meantime, the website will give you a glimpse of what he does best.
