An deirfiúr mhór - The big sister

A torc commissioned by my sister, with the request of addition of some gemstones to the terminals. Her first idea was something along the lines of citrine, but my heart called for Carnelian with her.

beidh grá agam duit go deo - I'll love you forever

Funny, I recently saw a necklace and bracelet set much like your torcs but bent into spirals with faceted gemstones in the terminals and made a mental note to show you that.

On another note I was at a party yesterday and one of the ladies asked where I got mine. Scribbled your website address on a piece of paper. Maybe I need a stash of business cards from you XD

In one of the jewellery shops in Belfast. It's not really a torc though, it's more like a spiral that winds around your wrist (I forgot what the necklace looked like). They just remind me of your torcs.

Ha, found photos:

I love your art so much. I'm wondering, how would one go about trying to learn how to make such things?

Thank you!

As for me, I learned by trial and error really. I went to museums, looked at the braids of broken torcs and how they were knotted and twisted together and went to try it for myself.
