Genderless Jewellery by Dublin's Edge Only
Where do you get the inspiration for your designs?
I get excited about simple objects around me and take as much inspiration from them as i do art and architecture. There is not doubt that my passion for music spills over into my designs (as exemplified by our new Vinyl Pendant!)
How long have you been in business and where are you currently stocked?
We are 8. Edge Only launched at the end of 2014 as an online jewellery brand. We sell in Wolf & Badger London and New York and the National Gallery of Ireland and are now keen to expand further into retail.
Will you be bringing a new range to Showcase 2022?
We have a number of new designs in every category, from threader earrings (versatile for multiple piercings) cufflinks in a variety of finishes, a new diamond ring and unisex pendants and necklaces.
How has the pandemic influenced your approach to design or business?
We were lucky to be an online-first business which meant we were able to upgrade our website at the start of the pandemic and shoot with models and film video during the less restricted weeks. It was a very positive time of growth for Edge Only. Now that things have eased we feel the desire for in person, tactile shopping experiences and wish to embrace brick and mortar relationships in tandem with our web shop.
What are you most excited about for Showcase 2022?
We are excited to be able to meet with buyers and boutique owners in person, and on a personal level I’m looking forward to seeing my fellow creatives again.
Why is it important to you that your designs are not defined by gender - that they can be worn by anybody?
I think jewellery and fashion should empower you and make you feel great. It’s all about personal preference and how you wear it - It’s not male or female, its what appeals to your aesthetic. The same pendant looks entirely different worn with a dress or over a sweatshirt (or through changing the thickness and length of the chain it is on). We design rings in a full range of sizes as they look completely different depending on how they are styled and in small or extra large sizes. Personality will always shine through!
