From our famed Tara’s Diary Collection, Shanore presents this stunning bead full of Irish history, symbolism and spirit. The sterling silver base of the bead is a strong base for the intricate and unique knotwork of glistening gold. The side of the bead also has inscribed the word “strength,” representing some of the qualities the Irish hold most dear. The combination of black, gold and silver is classic, as are the meanings of the bead.
The Virtue of the Irish
Throughout the centuries, the Irish have prided themselves on being faithful, outgoing and above all, strong. The bold, capital letters of the word etched into this bead reflect the virility of the Irish people. The delicately designed knotwork also plays a role in the Irish narrative by creating a visual representation of the nation’s tenacious spirit. The rope like gold strings tie firmly into one another creating an ironclad border.
The collection of beads brought to you by our famed and respected Tara’s Diary Collection can always be paired with other pieces.
