You know when you suddenly get the urge to pop into a shop for no apparent reason, and it always ends up being for the absolute Greater Good? Well this is what brought me to the work of jewellery designer Beatriz Palacios last week. Heading for home one evening I popped into The Loft Market in what was a combination of filling time and wishing to browse somewhere other than the high street. Lo and behold, my jewellery collection will never be the same again! Despite Beatriz’s thoroughly reasonable mid-range prices (the most expensive item comes in at €90 for a heavy gold collar), I am perennially broke these days (ah, the life of a commuting intern!) and look forward to the day when I can don a custom-made Beatriz Palacios piece. To shop Beatriz, see here or pop into the Powerscourt Centre’s Loft Market.
