Irish cherry wood Celtic harp necklace

(1 customer review)


The Celtic harp (also called Irish, Gaelic harp or Clarsach) has been the emblem of Ireland since medieval times. Wandering minstrels used to travel the country playing the harp, keeping Ireland’s legends alive.
This beautiful and unique hand-carved Celtic harp necklace will be made for you, or a loved one, in my studio on the West of Ireland.




This intricate Celtic harp necklace features a piece of wild Irish cherry wood, recycled from the harps constructed by a local luthier. As a musician myself, I take enormous satisfaction in creating a necklace whose inherent wood has previously featured in a beautiful hand-made musical instrument.

While its earliest origins are lost, the Irish harp has a certain history dating back at least 1000 years. Brian Boru, the last High King of Ireland (d 1014), is said to have been an accomplished player, but while he is attributed with all manner of skills for which there is no evidence, surviving 12-century annals refer to the Celtic harp being the only music played during the Crusades. At this time, the Gaelic harp was revered in Celtic culture (and all over Europe). It was de rigueur for Scottish and Irish kings and chieftains to have their own resident harper who, in turn, enjoyed high status and special privileges. The musician’s main duties were to accompany poetry recitations or the singing of psalms. While they may have composed their own music, they did not write them down.

This necklace is the perfect gift for anyone with Irish heritage or for someone who resonates with the Celtic myths and traditions of the natural world.

– Wild Irish cherry wood, sanded to a smooth finish
– Organic beeswax & oil finish to seal the wood & enhance its natural color
– Pendant size: 40mm long / 1.57 Inches long
– On an adjustable beige waxed nylon necklace, with a beautiful blue handmade ceramic bead

    My husband has purchased this and is very happy with the quality. I have also purchased this as a keyring which Juliette did with the quality. I would certainly recommend and my husband can’t wait to visit the stall when he next goes to Ireland. Keep up the very good work that you do.
