Style of charm

Recycled Irish coin
Until the end of the Middle Ages the Gaelic harp (Cláirseach) was one of the highest status musical instruments and harpers were amongst the most prestigious cultural figures amongst Irish and Scottish kings and chiefs. In both countries, the harper enjoyed special rights and played a crucial part in ceremonial occasions such as coronation and poetic recital. The main function of the Gaelic harp in medieval Scotland and Ireland seems to have been playing to accompany the recitation of poetry in Gaelic or Irish.
The historical Irish harp is the national symbol of Ireland. Each coin is hand pierced with a small jewellers saw. The Cláirseach on the coin is followed faithfully. Each coin is the result of time, patients and enjoyment. A lovely pendant for anyone.
You are welcome to choose the type of coin to be used.
Handcrafted and recycled in Cambridge, UK.
