Available in a choice of silver or 9ct gold, our sculptural Lucy pendant hangs on a strong yet fine 18inch long chain. (It can also be worn at a shorter length of 16inches). The angular silhouette of this pendant is formed in 1mm thick metal. We use contrasting matte and polished finishes to highlight the angular shape. Finished with our trademark, handmade clasp, each piece in our Homespun collection is named after a woman who was involved in The Country Shop:
Lucy Franks was another instigator of what The Country Shop would become. It was Lucy who suggested they serve teas and lunches in addition to showcasing real Irish homespun tweeds and crafts. This proved to be the true success of The Country Shop, which became an institution, a favourite lunch spot for Dubliners and country visitors alike. It was through the funds earned in the cafe that Muriel was able to support and promote the poorer, isolated craft workers around the country.
-The above information was attained from Geraldine Mitchell's book on the life and work of Muriel Gahan 'Deeds not Words'
Dimensions: The pendant piece measures 20mm in diameter x 5mm thick. It hangs on a chain 18inches long. If your preference is for chunkier jewellery, we have a larger version of our Lucy necklace available here.
