Silver pendant design based on the legend of The Children of Lir.King lir had four children, Fionnuala, Aodh, Fiachra and Con. Their mother the Queen had died and the King married Aoife. Aoife cast a spell over the children turning them into swans. This spell was to last 900 years, they were to spend 300 on their own lake, 300 years on the Sea of Moyle and 300 years on the Isle of Glora. Only the sound of a church bell would break the spell. The King saw what Aoife had done and banished her from his kingdom.
After 900 years had passed the swans heard the sound of a church bell. Caomhog stood outside his church and listened to their sad story in astonishment. The Holy water he sprindled on then turned them into an old woman and three old men. That night Caomhog dreamed of four swans flying up through the clouds and he knew the children of Lir were at last on their way to heaven to be with their Mother and Father again.

Ethel Kelly’s award winning range of hand painted OGHAM WISHES continue to enchant and delight. At her traditional workshop in Knockcroghery village in County Roscommon each Ogham is individually painted by Ethel on hand made paper and beautifully framed in a contemporary black wooden frame.
The ancient calligraphy of Japan is known as Shodou, which means ‘the way of writing’. The term ‘the way’ has always had a spiritual meaning whether it’s the Buddhists way of transcendence or the way of the light, seen in many spiritual beliefs.
The ancient calligraphy of Ireland is known as Ogham. Here to, the calm still process of using writing as an art form evokes a deeper sense of poetry for the world around us. Ethel Kelly’s work represents a continuance of this tradition in a contemporary and vibrant fashion. Placing it alongside the patient prehistoric works of Ogham, carved on standing stones dotted throughout the Irish landscape and the historic Ogham tracts, contained in the Book of Ballymote. This new and dramatic style of Ethel Kelly’s continues to make its mark on today’s design landscape.
Filip Vanas uniquely combines the structural qualities of architecture and the simplicity of elegance in his designer jewellery collection.
These works of minimalist sculpture would fit into any contemporary skyline as dramatically as they adorn his discerning clientele.
Qualified from the CTU, Prague as an architect Filip had practiced architecture for several years while exploring the possibilities of jewellery design and slowly finding a real passion for the latter. Then finally having abandoned architecture for good he focused fully on jewellery and took several courses in jewellery making and design with NCAD, Dublin.
Being influenced by the previous practice Filip puts a lot of architectural experience into his jewellery – he loves high contrast, vivid colours and strong geometrical compositions. Filip mainly works with silver, but he likes to experiment with other, often non-precious materials like aluminium, plastics or textiles.
Filip is registered with the Crafts Council of Ireland and all his silver work is properly hallmarked at the Dublin Assay Office.

Billy Moore’s work is both rare and prolific, admitting that he works with an intense fluidity that abandons the world around him. His love of bronze as a medium vibrates in each piece of sculpture he creates, it is a medium he understands and exploits to its greatest advantage. There is a sense of belonging and harmony in his group forms, a rhythm that runs from a source to an undefined future point of the imagination. His solo pieces never seeming isolated in their environment but instead space merges into their structures.
Billy Moore worked under Colin Grey at the Royal West Academy in England 1981-1985, specializing in sculptural form using clay, bronze and welded metal, Badu Design was established in 1998 as a business producing one off figurative ceramic and welded metal pieces. A development of the work into bronze casting along with Raku firing has provided a greater range which also incorporates garden sculptural form and Public Art Commissions. The studio includes a gallery hosting work by artists living and working in the North West.
