Irish and Celtic Memorial Jewellery

With St Patrick's Day just two weeks away, I was inspired to show off some of the Irish and Celtic themed memorial jewellery that I have previously made for people. I am quite often asked by customers from Ireland to incorporate Irish themes into the jewellery that I make from them, including colours and symbolic objects.

The first example below includes three bracelet charms containing cremated ashes. The three heart shaped bracelet charms are coloured green, white and orange to represent the Irish flag or tricolour.

The second example is a lock of hair preserved inside a resin heart shaped pendant, with the addition of a glittery green Shamrock symbol.

Continuing with the theme of Shamrocks, this is a real pressed Shamrock that was sent to me for preservation inside a resin paperweight.

And finally, a pair of sterling silver Celtic style memorial earrings containing cremated ashes and the settings coloured green.

I hope that you have enjoyed looking at some of my Irish and Celtic themed memorial jewellery and that you all have a wonderful St Patrick's Day!
