Island Links. A contemporary Irish jewellery collection that is forging special links around the world.
Our St Patrick's day competition 2017 is all about connecting people, about linking with loved ones and family, with people far from home, and people right beside us. Ireland is the renowned as the island of 1000 welcomes. With that spirit in mind St Patrick's day is an opportunity to celebrate what is unique and distinctive in every modern culture, and to find ways to link and celebrate the diversity of all cultural identities.
Contemporary Irish Jewelry designer Martina Hamilton lives and works in Sligo, along Ireland's wild Atlantic way. A recent discovery of her own ancestral connection with the tiny island of Dernish, which lies just of the north Sligo coast, inspired her to create the Island Link's collection. The jewellery pieces in hallmarked precious metal, feature rose gold and silver links and bars, which are connected by sterling silver chains.
“As I watched an incoming tide quietly encircle Dernish island one morning, some weathered iron mooring loops on the harbour wall caught my attention. I began to think how these old metal moorings were my link to the living past of the island, to my own family who had come from there generations before. I was moved by how tenuous all our living connections can be, with the past and indeed the present, how I almost wound up never knowing that this small island had played a significant part in my own heritage.
"For me Island Links is about celebrating and reaffirming the loving connections we make in our lives with people and places” - Martina Hamilton.
