About

Joe is looking to raise funds for lost wax casting equipment and to create a studio space to ply his trade and retail his and his fellow crafters wares. The Irish market is awash with “Irish Designed” and imported crafts and Jewellery, so a lot of highly skilled crafters are unemployed or working in factories, as barmen and taxi drivers. Ireland was always a go to place for crafts from Crystal to wool, jewellery, woodworking, musical instruments, clothing fashion etc etc.  

 Due to the research Joe carried out since restarting making Jewellery he has discovered that the Irish craft export market is looking for goldsmiths and Irish crafters that can create quantities. Joe wants to use the ancient lost wax casting method to increase his production to fulfil the wholesale demand that he believes is there.

As a registered goldsmith all his pieces will be submitted to The Company of Goldsmiths Dublin Castle to be assayed for Quality. The Irish Hallmark is one of the oldest guarantees of quality in the world. His makers mark is JVD and will clearly identify any of his pieces.

 Ireland was always a go to place for crafts from Crystal to wool, jewellery, woodworking, musical instruments, clothing fashion etc etc.

Risks and challenges

The risks involved have all ready been encountered as far as I can see.
And each individual crafter will be well up to speed with their own products.
So we will be part of a diverse group with a large skill set.
