The Muriel is the perfect combination of wearability and statement piece. The two handmade silver forms, one hollow, one solid, move freely on the bangle which is formed in 2mm round silver wire. As is characteristic of all Names Dublin jewellery, matte and polished finishes are incorporated to add interest and reflect light. Satisfyingly weighty, the Muriel bangle is incredibly tactile. 

Muriel Gahan was the founder of The Country Shop which opened its doors in no. 23 St. Stephens Green in 1930. It ran as a gallery, shop, and cafe which supported the endeavors of the isolated craft workers in Ireland’s countryside, until its closure in 1978. A woman who liked to get things done and passionate about preserving the Irish traditional crafts, Muriel was pivotal in setting up several societies including the Irish Countrywomen's Association and the Crafts Council of Ireland. Muriel often spoke of the three principles governing country crafts: necessity, economy and beauty. She believed that ‘In a small country such as ours, it is only by concentrating on quality and originality that our products can hope to find a place in the world market’

-The above information was attained from Geraldine Mitchell's book on the life and work of Muriel Gahan 'Deeds not Words' 

Dimensions: Inside diameter of small bangle: 6.5cm. Inside diameter of large bangle: 7cm. The solid silver round piece measures 10mm in diameter. The hollow semi-circular piece measures 20mm x 10mm
