This necklace was made as my contribution to the Wire Artisan Guild’s monthly challenge – “Emerald Island” for March. I din’t make special preparations: didn’t read about Celts, their culture or history. I just followed my thoughts. When I think about Ireland I see green colour, like green pastures and green softly rolling hills. I see sharp steps of cliffs and red-headed people. I remember it was recently the fastest developing country in Europe. And all that I tried to include in the necklace: green Malachite, soft curves hand weaved with Sterling Silver, sharp steps and hand weaved Copper band – the connection with Ireland’s Celtic origin. Very bold and modern design, delicately oxidised for organic look. Hand polished, hand buffed.
