Nellie Necklace

€125.00


€125.00


Characteristic of the short pendants, ‘Nellie’ is elegant and understated. By using a sleek 1.5mm snake chain, the pendant sits perfectly centred, sometimes shifting and moving with the wearer. The handmade clasp is an integral part of the design both aesthetically and functionally.

The daughter of a Guinness’ master cooper, Nellie raised her 5 younger siblings when her mother died at an early age. She earned a living as a milliner and stitcher in Dublin’s Stoneybatter in the 1920’s. Nellie was Laura’s great Aunt.

The chain is 18" long and the pendant is approx 1.5cm sq
