Martina features in the Gabrielle Monaghan article in the Sunday independent
Martina designs bespoke pieces, the most famous of which was presented by ex-Taoiseach Enda Kenny to former US President Barack Obama at the White House on St Patrick's Day in 2013. Sligo's Yeats Day Committee, which organises celebrations to honour Yeats on his birthday, commissioned the piece, which is based on Innisfree island, the inspiration for the poem The Lake Isle of Innisfree. The designer also produced silver cufflinks for Obama and Kenny.
Two years later, on the 150th anniversary of the birth of the Nobel Prize-winning poet, Joanna Lumley was given a Yeatsian rose necklace Martina had crafted for the British actress when the star formally opened Yeats's Secret Garden in Sligo.
