“Find a penny, pick it up, and all day long you’ll have good luck.” That’s just one of many lucky penny sayings from around the world. An old Irish custom was for a shopkeeper to give one penny back to the buyer to wish them good luck with their new purchase. And it’s a widespread custom to include a new penny when giving a wallet or purse as a gift—as a wish for prosperity.


This pair of bracelets feature rich green Connemara marble beads along with a silver-plated Irish penny. The coin’s design was taken from the 9th century Book of Kells, but it has been out of circulation since the introduction of the Euro in 2002.


Handcrafted in Dublin, Ireland. Connemara marble and authentic silver-plated Irish coin (year will vary), strung on elastic. Beads are 1/4" diameter. Coin is 3/4" diameter. One size fits most.


For three generations, the Walsh family have worked the beautiful green marble that is unique to Connemara in the West of Ireland.


Their quarry at Lissoughter in the Connemara mountains first opened in the 19th century. In 1903, King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra visited it during the Royal Tour of Connemara. Today, the marble of Connemara can be found in the world's great monuments: in the halls of Trinity College Dublin, on the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, in Kensington Palace, and in some of America's finest buildings.


The marble is crafted and finished at the family's workshop in Rathfarnham Village, Dublin. Traditional and modern tools are used to create products that capture the rare beauty of Connemara marble.

Talavera pottery originated in the Arab-Andalusia culture of Talavera de la Reina, Spain, where it was known as majolica. When Spanish monks came to Mexico in the 16th century, they wanted to decorate their monasteries and churches with tiles like they had back home. But although pre-Hispanic Mexican cultures had a long history of working in ceramic, they didn’t use a potter’s wheel or glaze. The monks brought specialized artisans to the Mexican state of Puebla to train them in the majolica style. Mexican artisans fused their knowledge of ceramic techniques and local materials with their own interpretation of majolica, creating the distinctive patterns and colors that have come to be known as talavera pottery.

Many of the artisans who work on these pieces own family farms and return to their village during planting and harvest seasons.
