From our famed Tara's Diary Collection, ShanOre presents this stunning bead full of Irish history, symbolism and spirit. The intricate and unique knot work of glistening sterling silver leads to the beautiful inscribed medallion which hangs down. The medallion has inscribed the word strength representing some of the qualities the Irish hold most dear. The Virtue of the Irish Throughout the centuries, the Irish have prided themselves on being faithful, outgoing and above all, strong. The bold letters of the word etched through this bead reflect the virility of the Irish people. The delicately designed knotwork also plays a role in the Irish narrative by creating a visual representation of the nation's tenacious spirit.
