Cyril Flannigan. 23, Somerton Industrial Estate, Dargan Crescent, Belfast, N.Ireland, BT39JB
You might not have heard of Cyril but you may be more familiar with some of his previous clients – Ozzy Osbourne, The Rolling Stones, ZZ Top, Dave Stewart (Eurythmics), Dolores O’Riordan (Cranberries), Motorhead and Tina Turner. Cyril has also created for 10 Downing Street, the Sultan of Brunei, the Arab state of Qatar and McLaren.
Cyril discovered his passion for making stunning jewellery during a foundation art year in Canterbury. “I would always find problems in creating some difficult pieces, but really loved solving those problems. In fact if I didn’t have something difficult to figure out it wasn’t a real challenge for me.”
From there Cyril went onto create jewellery for a number of reputable goldsmiths - Padgham and Putland subcontracted under London’s Grant McDonalds and Richard Fox Associates as well as the world famous The Crazy Pig. Now he is back in Northern Ireland and has started up one of Belfast’s funkiest new ventures - Ember "My passion has always been jewellery design, and so although I loved being part of such companies such as The Crazy Pig, I felt that I needed to express myself through my own collection, and Ember jewellery was the result. I always believe that if you are going to buy a piece of jewellery, investment is the key, especially when jewellery can possess so many meanings or spark emotion, with Ember jewellery you have the chance to create a unique design that can be treasured and enjoyed for a lifetime!"
