Former Links intern Siobhan Maher to strengthen design department.
Domino has strengthened its new product development and design department with the appointment of award-winning Birmingham City University (BCU) graduate Siobhan Maher.
Maher graduated from BCU with an HND in jewellery and silversmithing after graduating from the The University of Birmingham with an honours degree in English. During her studies, Maher has won a string of awards including three Goldsmiths’ Craftsmanship Design Awards and a student competition organised by Domino’s parent company Weston Beamor.
Maher said: “Having won the Weston Beamor competition I did my work experience at Domino and was really impressed with the company and the design team, so when I saw the job advertised I applied straight away. It’s a huge range so there is a great deal of diversity in my work and I’m really enjoying the varied challenges it creates.”
Joining the design team at Domino is Maher’s first full-time role in the jewellery industry but she previously worked as a creative intern at Links of London where she worked with the design department to create a range of corporate jewellery and a capsule collection for retail based on the brand’s monogram.
Domino design and new product development department head Naomi Newton-Sherlock said: “I have no doubt that Siobhan’s undoubted talent will be instrumental in helping us to continue creating the unique, distinctive and highly saleable designs which are now synonymous with the Domino name.”
Domino’s new product development and design department mixes traditional drawing skills and 2D and 3D computer-aided design programmes to create up to six collections a year.
