The “Wire Artisans Guild” theme challenge for the Month of March is “Emerald Isle”. As St. Patty’s Day is in March, all things Irish (and all things green, for that matter) are intrinsically linked together in my mind.

But, with this necklace I depart from the story of St. Patrick and venture into the violent & seductive epoch of Ireland’s heroic age…

Maeve, the queen of Connacht, looms larger than life in the Ulster Cycle of Irish Mythology. No delicate and dainty queen, she had several husbands and countless lovers in an attempt to satisfy her seemingly insatiable libido. Nor did she hesitate to fight and kill in order to get what she wanted; She went to war in order to obtain the prize stud- bull, Donn Cúailnge, and prevent her husband’s wealth from surpassing her own…

This necklace, all golden and flashing green, is my tribute to that intoxicating and provocative queen.
