The Inspiration

Created as a contemporary tribute to the incredible Celtic Art legacy of Iona, this collection is inspired by the Book of Kells, Iona’s medieval stone-carvings, and renowned Celtic metalsmiths Alexander and Euphemia Ritchie who along with Iain MacCormick (Mhairi's relative), created beautiful jewels on Iona from 1890-1970. Their intricate work was loved by frequent Iona visitors including Andrew Carnegie and Charles Rennie Macintosh.
