Meet the Makers... The Messy Brunette

A Splash of Colour in Every Pair

We’re delighted to introduce a playful twist to the Russborough Shop with our newest addition: a delightful selection of earrings from The Messy Brunette, lovingly crafted by Maura Bourke in her Tipperary studio. Since 2013, Maura has been turning traditional craftsmanship on its head with her vibrant and whimsically designed pieces.

Our range focuses on earrings, each piece laser-cut from sustainably sourced European plywood and hand-painted in a spectrum of joyful colours.

Maura’s creations perfectly balance modern style with the time-honoured skills of Irish craft, making them ideal for all occasions.

Why settle for ordinary when you can wear a conversation starter? The Messy Brunette’s earrings are not just accessories; they are miniature declarations of fun and individuality. Whether it’s the geometric playfulness of her designs or the subtle nod to Irish artisanship, there’s a story behind each pair waiting to be told.

Venture into our shop to see the array of styles from The Messy Brunette. Opt for a pair that promises not only to brighten your look, but also your day. Supporting Irish craftsmanship has never looked so charming!
