About this Piece

Beautiful handmade sterling silver pendant showing a bird flying over the water.

There is a word in Gaeilge “dáimh” that is difficult to translate but means a natural fondness or kindred feeling for something; it can be used in the context of country, culture or kin, as well as people who left their ancestors’ homeland many generations ago but still have a strong connection with their ancestral home and a desire to find their roots. This piece is designed for anyone seeking a connection or sense of belonging on whatever level that may be!

This product measures 43mm long and 27mm 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.
