About this Piece

This beautiful Ogham pendant has been made with Sterling Silver and adorned with brass spirals and copper to represent the Ogham script. The silver has a texture of lace to represent the Megalithic standing stones prevalent all over Ireland. The early alphabet known as Ogham script consisted of simple characters easily drawn using downward and upward strokes. Each letter in the Ogham alphabet was associated with a tree. Trees were considered sacred by the Druids, particularly the oak from which the word Druid is thought to derive. Ogham script can be seen on standing stones throughout Ireland and other parts of the Celtic World.

This product measures 36mm long and 14mm 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.
