Deirdre O'Donnell Goldsmith Enamel Jewellery

"A Currach is a type of Irish boat with a wooden frame, over which animal skins or hides were once stretched, though now canvas is more usual. A larger version of this is known simply as a bád iomartha (rowing boat). It is suggested that the prototype of this wooden boat was built on Inishnee around 1900 and based upon a tender from a foreign vessel seen in Cleggan harbour. These wooden boats progressively supplanted the canvas currach as a workboat around the Connemara coast. This rowing currach measured up to 20 feet, and is still seen in water in North Donegal."

This beautiful Solid Silver and Fine Enamel Pendant is hand crafted in our Dublin Studios and measures approximately 34mm x 18mm.

This piece is delivered with a choice of a 16", 18" or 20" Silver Spiga Chain.

The Irish Currach Collection was designed in 2014 by Deirdre during an unforgettable Summer in Connemara in the West of Ireland.

The Collection has travelled all over the World and reminds our customers of this beautiful and most magical part of Ireland.
