Celebrate your Irish heritage on St Patrick's Day and any day of the year with this modern, Irish ornament.

This is a very unique slab of Connemara marble. It is an unusual, abstract shape, almost a geometric teardrop. I decorated it with a hand-formed Celtic spiral in silver wire.

Connemara marble is mined only in the West of Ireland. The stone comes in a variety of natural shades of green, grey, white and sometimes yellow. This slab is a natural, soft green with grey undertones, particularly on the reverse side.

I formed the spiral out of silver filled wire then hammered it to make it more rigid. I wrapped it to the stone with softer silver craft wire, incorporating in a flat flower bead at the back. Above is a bright, apple green wooden bead. The bail is wide enough for a narrow ribbon, tie or hemp chord.

This is an unusual and rare, OOAK, Irish ornament. A little piece of Ireland to treasure. Hang it in the window, above the door, and come winter, even on your holiday tree.



MEANINGS OF CONNEMARA MARBLE:
Calm, Serenity, Luck. All green stones are associated with healing.
