The harp has long been a symbol of Ireland and is actually the official emblem of Ireland. Ireland is unique in having a musical instrument as an official emblem, how lucky are we! The harp dates back to medieval times and is one of the oldest instruments in traditional Irish music and is currently experiencing a revival. Perhaps the legends of its magical powers comes from the time when the bards would sing and tell stories of famous events to the Kings and Chiefs of Ireland.

Handcrafted in Ireland by Kieran Cunningham, Co. Wicklow.

Kieran Cunningham

Kieran has worked in metal design since 1977 and has developed a unique range of handcrafted modern Irish jewellery. Influenced by Ireland’s rich ancient Celtic heritage. Kieran’s original designs are indiviudally handcrafted from raw materials. He uses sterling silver, yellow gold, brass, copper and alpaca silver. He uses hand-tools to create each piece, including hand-chiseled scroll effects and shining hammered finishes, which are an age-old tradition of Celtic jewellery design. This form of jewellery making has been passed down through the centuries, but with very few jewellers actually using this process, Kieran is keeping this skill alive.

Alpaca Silver

Alpaca Silver is an alloy of copper, nickel, and zinc. Sometimes called Nickel Silver or German Silver. The usual formulation is 60% copper, 20% nickel and 20% zinc. This metal combination allows for a very hard, strong, durable and well wearing jewellery. Alpaca Silver polishes to a bright silver finish to make stunning jewellery.
