About this Piece

The Ancient Irish were believed to be descended from the Tuatha de Danann - the Tribe of Anu, an ancient Earth Mother goddess believed to be wed to the Celtic Sun god Belenos. This pendant is inspired by Celtic warrior goddesses who featured throughout Irish history, such as Queen Mebh, Morrigan (often represented in battle as a Crow), and Scathach who trained Cuchulain in the art of swordsmanship. This design represents the Irish female energy.

This product measures 49mm long and 13mm wide.

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.
