Irishman Pierce Healy has created 10 rings for Peter Jackson’s latest movie and he explained to Ray D’Arcy how it came to be.

Mortal Engines, the legendary filmmaker’s latest futuristic release is out soon.  But how did Pierce’s creations end up featuring in it?

A friend of Pierce’s who happened to work in New Zealand in Peter Jackson’s studio recommended him for the gig.

“They were looking for someone that made kind of futuristic ‘Mad Max-esque’ rings and jewellery so she put them in touch with me.”

His Instagram feed was enough to pique the interest of the director, after which Pierce designed 20 rings and they created 10.
