Join us at The Leitrim Design House for a Showcase of jewellery from local designer Jean Whitfield this Friday, February 7 from 5:30pm.
A wide range of Jeans collection will be on display and it is a great opportunity to meet the face behind Oak Alley Designs.

All of Oak Alley jewellery is designed and hand made by Jean Whitfield.
Jean said “The beauty of nature makes me smile. Beautiful jewellery makes me smile. When I combine the natural beauty of nature into my jewellery it makes me smile. I want to share these smiles by bringing my jewellery to a bigger audience. I want the recipient to smile upon opening the gift box and seeing a truly unique piece inspired by nature itself.”
Jean also provides jewellery workshops for groups including hen parties.
