Connemara, in western Ireland, is home to the mottled green marble that's known as the country's national gem. The Walsh family, in Rathfarnham Village, Dublin, have been working with Connemara marble for three generations, and craft these stretchy beaded bracelets by hand. Each is paired with a sterling silver charm that reflects an element of Irish culture: a Celtic cross, a claddagh, and a shamrock.


Connemara marble beads strung on elastic, with sterling silver charms. 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 Connermara 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.

        I like the small beads that don't get in the way when writing or typing. They are very easy to put on or take off since the beads are strung on elastic cord. These three bracelets are not only comfortable to wear, but also are quite pretty with the little charms hanging on them.

        I do not have large hands (glove size 7) and I hesitated to force the bracelets over my hand for fear that the cord would break. These beautiful bracelets can be greatly improved by restringing them on stretchy bead cord. Glad that they were for me and not a gift.

        Disappointed

        • Pretty

        Cons

        • Not Sturdy
        • Too small

        Best Uses

          These bracelets are beautiful, but not well made. I have average sized wrists and the elastic is snug. One of the charms fell off after a week. I love the bracelets and plan to restring them and put the charms on sturdy jump rings.

                  I bought this pretty bracelet for an Irish friend and she loves it. Fortunately, she is petite since the bracelet runs a little small. She really appreciated that it was elastic and slip-on. "No hard-to-see clasp" she said to me in her thank you note. I really liked this bracelet, as did my friend.

                        Excellent gift for my Irish relatives. However, although I received all 3 bracelets, 2 of them had the same charm. Was disappointed because I wanted the gift to be different for each individual.

                        Gave it as a gift to my daughter-in-law, whose Mother is a born-Irish Colleen, and holds her heritage to heart. She absolute loved the bracelets and they fit her medium wrist perfectly, Beads and silver pendants are smaller than expected but still have all the natural beauty of the marble and silver. Can be combined well with other silver jewelry.Even with the Classic Irish symbols, the size and shapes are discreetly classy.

                        • Charms Are Traditional

                        Cons

                          Best Uses

                            The bracelet looks much nicer in the catalogue than in hand. Charms appear tinny, and cheap. Actual product received had two of same charm instead of three separate charms as catalogue showed. Getting this unscrewed took some time, but responsiveness of NG personnel was very good. See Service / Delivery comments.

                            the bracelets are wonderful and I love wearing them. I would certainly order more pieces from Connemara
