Causeway is inspired by the iconic Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland and it's basalt columns which are the result of an ancient volcanic eruption.
A world Heritage site, the tops of the columns form stepping stones that lead from the cliff foot and disappear under the sea.
According to legend, the columns are the remains of a causeway built by a giant. The story goes that the Irish giant Finn MacCool, was challenged to a fight by the Scottish giant Benandonner. Finn accepted the challenge and built the causeway across the North Channel so that the two giants could meet.
As a child this was, and sill is, one of my favourite places to visit. I am intrigued by the beauty, romance, history, stones and how on a wet day the rain creates puddles in the central concave recesses carved by the elements over the centuries.
This collection captures the shape and reflection, and is hand crafted from 925 Sterling Silver.
