Irish Holly songbird necklace


My two passions in life are music, I am a musician as well as an instrument maker, and nature. To me, there is nothing sweeter than the sound of bird singing. As you can imagine this songbird necklace is one of my most personal and treasured pieces.



This delicately carved songbird necklace will be made for you, or a loved one, in my studio on the West of Ireland.

Adorned with an inlay of blue abalone shell, this delicate songbird necklace features a piece of Irish holly wood.
There are many myths and legends associated with the holly tree. Considered one of the most sacred trees by the druids in Ireland, the evergreen holly was the ruler of the dark winter months, while the oak was the ruler of the lighter summer months. holly was seen as having powerful magical properties.

Although there are many aspects to Irish heritage, traditions and culture, music is a very important one. In previous centuries, music and storytelling were the only forms of entertainment on an island that had no electricity and where only a small minority of the population were literate. On cold, dark evenings, villages would crowd together into their local pub to share a warm fire, hear stories and listen to music played by the local musicians (of course there was usually dancing too, which is where our traditional dancing originates from). It started a tradition that has been kept alive since then, as music is still a very important part of life in Ireland.

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. This is a unique addition to anybody’s jewellery collection.
