(1 customer review)


This Celtic harp pendant, traditional musical instrument of medieval Ireland is the perfect gift for anyone with Irish heritage or for someone who resonates with the Celtic myths and traditions of the natural world.


Adorned with a lovely Trinity Celtic bail, this unique and intricate hand-carved Irish bog oak Celtic harp pendant will be made for you, or a loved one, in my studio on the West of Ireland.

Bog Oak comes from ancient forests that once covered Ireland. Huge oaks have been buried in peat bogs and preserved from decay by the acidic and anaerobic bog conditions, sometimes for hundreds or even thousands of years. The wood is usually stained black by tannin dissolved in the acidic water. Bog-wood represents the early stages in the fossilization of wood, with further stages ultimately forming lignite and coal over a period of many millions of years.
Known as King of the forest for its strength and longevity, the Oak was sacred to the ancient Celts and is considered one of the three primary magical woods.

The Celtic harp, also called Irish, Gaelic harp or Cláirseach in the modern Irish language has been the emblem of Ireland since medieval times. Wandering minstrels used to travel the country playing the harp, keeping Ireland’s legends alive.
Today, a representation of the traditional harp is to be found on the Presidential Seal and on many official documents, on passports, on the flag of Leinster (but not the national flag), on Irish euro coins and as a logo for a number of prominent state-supported organizations such as the National University of Ireland.

    I wanted to give my partner something very special for his 50th birthday, and so I ordered a specifically-crafted (slightly bigger size, with a green bead) bog oak harp pendant for him. Juliette put in time and care, from responding to my questions, to carving the pendant, to beautifully wrapping it, and for the lovely note that came along with it. I’m Irish, living in France, and this gift was perfect for so many reasons. I’d highly recommend the pieces made by Juliette, especially if you are looking for something that is extra-special.
