Éireann
1916

Sterling silver with gold plated details on an 18" chain, this pendant remembers the events of Ireland 1916. I decided to go with symbols to remember these brave warriors who gave their lives for the freedom of Ireland.

Shamrock - Ireland, the right to our own Nation.

Peace Lily - The end of fighting on Irish soil.

Heart - The fierce love that burned in their hearts for Ireland.

These three elements come together at the base of the pendant to form the Newgrange tri-spiral, which to me is one of the oldest symbols of Ireland.
It's meaning is myriad, to me it represents life, death and rebirth, as Ireland was reborn as a nation once again in 1916.

100 years a Nation!!
