Banshee Silver Doire Necklace
Una O Boyle, Silversmith, is the designer behind Banshee Silver. Her work is inspired by the ancient traditions of the Celts, but with a contemporary take.
Like many ancient cultures the pagan Celts saw nature as integral to their lives and rivers, springs, trees, all had spirit life forces.

Many places in Ireland are called after the Oak - Doire
