I’ve been working on a horse pendant for quite some time. Trying to capture the elegance of a horse in a minimalist way was key to what I had in my head. I’ve been fond of horses since I was a young girl with many fond memories of pony trekking on the beach and jumping back on to a horse after being flung off when I attempted to learn how to jump.
This Horse pendant is meticulously crafted in sterling silver with love for Irish roots, history and folklore. It comes on a choice of 16 , 18 or 26 inch sterling silver chain.
This recessed parts of the design are heavily textured to create a nice contrast with the high polish finish of the minimalist horse design.
The pendant measures approx 20mm in diameter.
The pendants are hallmarked – 925 sterling silver – in the Assay Office at Dublin Castle.
Tracy was educated through the Irish language and her love of Ireland’s heritage is central to this collection. Her designs often feature an innovative use of light inspired by the prehistoric monument at Newgrange, Co. Meath in Ireland that was constructed between 3000 and 2500 BC. It is aligned with the rising sun and once a year, on the Winter Solstice (the shortest day of the year), light floods the chamber of Newgrange to spectacular effect. Newgrange also showcases some wonderful early artwork with Celtic Spirals etched into large rocks at the front of the monument. These pieces attempt to capture the magic and importance of Newgrange as a national Irish treasure.
