Since discovering that my great grandmother shares the exact same birth date as myself, separated by exactly 100 years, I have been inspired to explore my Celtic roots. My brand's identity is Bridget Fainne; the name comes from my great grandmother, Bridget, and the term "fainne," which loosely means "jewelry or bauble." Piece of fainne were often worn by Irish folk to let other Irish folk know they had something in common. My practice lies in bringing together old and new, and nursing vintage, discarded (and in many a sense, homely) jewelry back to life in order to recycle these items into little pieces of Celtic heaven. Bridget Fainne's slogan is "All things Irish and dandy!"
