About the Maker
Úna O Boyle is a jewelry designer, maker and storyteller who uses her silversmith craft to retell the ancient stories of her Irish and Celtic culture. She is passionate about the mythology and folklore that define her heritage, and after studying anthropology at university is now studying the Irish language too.
Having grown up in Belfast during the turbulent times of the 70s and 80s, Úna often escaped to rural Donegal on Ireland's remote northwest, a rugged area populated with hidden prehistoric megalithic tombs and ancient standing stones. These local relics are enshrouded in legends, from Diarmuid and Grainne’s grave to the 'little people' living under the mountains. Úna continues that tradition by enshrining her jewelry with Celtic and Irish symbolism, ensuring that these ancient stories live on.
