Aoife O’Mahony a goldsmith from West Cork, writes:
Here’s a short video I recently had made of me making my Beacon pendant. I tend to specialise in wedding jewellery and bespoke pieces, but this pendant has been extraordinarily popular.
The original pendant was commissioned by Wish of Skibbereen back in 2010, it represents the Beacon in Baltimore, Co Cork, a familiar landmark for locals and visitors alike.
I hope some of your visitors will find this process interesting. I figured, ‘Who doesn’t like watching how stuff is made?’
The 2010 pendant was a limited edition and sold out in days. Since then I have redesigned the pendant twice. 10% of each pendant sold is donated to the RNLI. In the last 6 years, Aoife O’Mahony Design and Wish and have donated over €5500 to the RNLI in Baltimore.
This is another limited edition of 200 pendants in sterling silver with a 9ct rose gold bead. A small number of which are available from my online shop for €125
