13 May New 1916 Jewellery Collection opening 25th May 7.30pm
Counties of Ireland Jewellery are commemorating the Easter Rising with the launch of The 1916 Jewellery Collection. The collection has been inspired by the events of 1916 and will be launched in the Leitrim Design House, at The Dock, Carrick-on-Shannon, on Wednesday 25th of May at 7.30pm. All are welcome to join us in celebrating this work.
For this brand new collection COIJ have collaborated with two Irish artists, jewellery designer/engraver Pierce Healy and visual artist Amanda Jane Graham.
Graham’s design acknowledges the essential role of women in the GPO during 1916 and honours the Irish Women’s Council “Cumann Na mBan” with this beautifully engraved pendant.
Healy demonstrates his master skills in engraving, creating a contemporary design of beautiful mark making that is reminiscent of Irish Craft since millennia.
The 1916 Jewellery Collection is a stunning range of jewellery hand-made in the Northwest of Ireland and presented in unique hand-made gift boxes. It is the perfect gift for that special someone, to celebrate an anniversary or event or just to treat yourself. COIJ can personalise any piece by engraving or setting stones. They are happy to hear your ideas and to create the perfect gift just for you. The 1916 Jewellery Collection prices start from €69.00.
