Aine Breen is the founder and designer behind Liwu Jewelry. A collection of delicate jewelry with meaning – ‘Small gifts, big meanings’. In late 2011, Aine moved from Dublin to Beijing. Eager to discover more about Chinese Culture, she took a course in Chinese Calligraphy. Here, she discovered the character for ‘love’. It was beautiful and she learnt it meant ‘life to the heart and grace to the body’. Aine aims to design pieces that are ideal gifts which are thought provoking, with a subtle message between the giver and the receiver Aine is proud that all the pieces are made in Ireland. Stocked in 12 stores around Ireland and the UK, her jewelry is also available on her website. Already this year she has been listed as a designer to look out for in both Social & Personal and Gladys magazines and has been shortlisted in Irish Country Living Magazine’s Irish Made awards.
