Recognised worldwide, the claddagh is the ultimate symbol of love, loyalty and friendship. The union of the hands around the heart (the physical & the emotional) is surmounted by a crown (a regal indication of the sacred significance of the relationship).
With my two hands I give you my heart, and crown it with my loyalty. Traditional Irish
An original design by Kathleen Smyth & Adam Grabski.
The Wild Goose Studio
Since its foundation in 1970, Wild Goose Studio has sought its inspiration in Ireland's history, poetry and mythology. From the beginning, a group of skilled craft-workers in Kinsale, Co. Cork has maintained the tradition of high quality as the range of images has grown. The early experimental spirit of cofounders Brian Scott-McCarthy and Kathleen Smyth remains to this day as Wild Goose broadens its horizons and expands its offering of award-winning gifts for friends, family and for you.
