Éireann Brooch Sterling Silver
Sterling silver with beautiful Irish symbolism detailing this brooch 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 brooch 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!!
