Office of Public Works presents a stunning exhibition of sculptural pendants and rings by master-goldsmith Rudolf Heltzel, at the State Apartments, Dublin Castle – on tour from the National Design & Craft Gallery and Design & Crafts Council of Ireland. An icon of Irish craft and design, Rudolf Heltzel has gained an international reputation for the originality, quality and timeless aesthetic of his craftsmanship with each piece created meticulously by hand using some of the world’s oldest jewellery techniques. This exhibition will showcase many of his most ambitious and technically complex designs, presenting pieces selected from his personal archive alongside new work in three of his sculptural pendant collections – Rock Crystal, Tourmaline Butterfly and Druzy. A series of spectacular gem rings designed by Heltzel will also be presented in the exhibition.
