Ones to Watch

Each week we shine a spotlight on some of our favourite brands and businesses - giving you the inside track on the people and the products you need to know for 2023. 



The Home Moment 

The Home Moment


The Home Moment was founded in 2020 by three female entrepreneurs – Eileen Denham, Deirdre Young and Sinead Bailey Kelly. Collectively they have many years’ experience in the events, branding and hospitality industries and pivoted into home fragrance and candles when the pandemic struck. 

The USP for the Home Moment is a sensory based approach to product making so that each candle comes with a natural soundscape which can be accessed via a QR code so that one can be immersed in a full experience including sight, smell and sound. 

The candles are made in Ireland from GMO-free soy wax complete with sustainable packaging and a wildflower seed card with the product information on it which can later be planted in the jar when the candle runs out.



Clare O'Connor 

Artist and designer Clare O’Connor is best known for her vibrant silk and cashmere scarves but she’ll also be bringing some new products to Showcase in January including her new umbrellas which feature her colourful printed designs. Made to last from recycled fabric, these umbrellas feature a double-layered canopy for extra wind resistance and a sustainably sourced wooden handle with a strong mechanism.
O’Connor’s umbrellas feature what has now become her signature edging - a natty black and white striped design. This monochrome addition can also be seen on her vibrant scarves which are available in a range of sizes and shapes as well as material makeup including linen/ modal/ silk blends, silk crepe de chine and bamboo. 



Simon Barber Jewellery 


Based in Fermoy, Co. Cork, Simon Barber is a fifth generation jeweller who comes from a family business that dates back to 1869. Barber still uses many of the tools and techniques passed down to him from father to sons for five generations to create his unique pieces of jewellery.
Inspired by the natural world and Ireland's ancient culture, Barber is influenced by natural textures and organic shapes. His designs include a range of bracelets, pendants, earrings and cufflinks in collections with evocative names such as ‘A Balancing Act’, ‘By the Light of the Moon’ and ‘The Islands’. 
In January Simon Barber Jewellery will bring some new designs to Showcase including the ‘Bright Star’ design made from oxidised silver with a disc of 9ct gold and the ‘Together’ necklace which is made from separate sliding pieces which come together to form a whole.
