  1. Amazing... and couldn't resist buying a beautiful pendant from their shop :-)
    I was surprised at the colours of the Connemara Woman's shawl and would have expected red. Thanks so much for passing on the info Chris and Clara.

  2. They are fabulous photos... I haven't looked at the pendants, might be safer not to. ;-)

    As for the colour of the shawl, I guess even Connemara women like a change now and then. Very pretty though...

    1. Oh, it's not just the pendants that would tempt you Chris... {chuckle}
      However, I must say that these stunningly beautiful handmade goods are quite reasonably priced.

  3. Methinks I had better not look, at least for now ;-)
