Meaning of Design

Tara Brooch: Dates back to the eighth century. It is the most famous piece of celtic jewelry. This brooch  is a wonderful copy of the originals , worn as a symbol of status by the high kings of tara. The tara brooch is named after a town in Ireland where the high kings of Ireland met to discuss the business of the land. The tara brooch has been added to the many symbols of Ireland , and considered a classic in its own right. The original tara brooch can be found in our National History Museum in Dublin.                                                       

Ardagh Chalice: 

Ranks with the Book Of Kells as one of the finest known works of Celtic art, is thought to have been made in the 9th century AD.

A large, two-handled silver cup, decorated with gold, gilt bronze, brass, lead pewter and enamel, assembled from 354 separate pieces. The names of the apostles are incised in a frieze around the bowl, below a girdle bearing inset gold wirework panels of animals, birds, and geometric interlace. Techniques used include hammering, engraving, Lost-wax casting, filigree applique, cloisonne and enameling.

It was found in 1868, together with a small bronze cup and four brooches, by two boys, Jim Quin and Paddy Flanagan, digging in a potato field on the south-western side of a rath (ring fort) called Reerasta, beside the village of Ardagh, County Limerick, Ireland. It had a bronze cup within it, and four ornate brooches (fibulae). Buried without the least protection as they were, the pieces must have been interred in a hurry, probably temporarily, as the owner probably intended to return for them at a later time.
