Stefanie Cheong Kilkenny Limestone Jewellery Range

Kilkenny Limestone Jewellery Range, V&A Dundee

The range of Kilkenny Limestone Jewellery by Stefanie Ying Lin Cheong, was designed and made exclusively for V&A Dundee using off-cuts of the unique limestone flooring. Sourced from Kilkenny, Ireland, the stone was selected for the interior of the museum by it’s Architect Kengo Kuma. The commissioned jewellery range, therefore shares the architect’s ethos of sustainability in design. The jewellery range is available exclusively in the V&A Dundee Shop.
