Winter tales

While winter in Ireland isn’t comparable with winter in Michigan or anywhere really cold, it can have its chilly days.

However, one of the constant features of Dublin is Dublin Bay and even in winter the light and the vistas can be impressive.  In fact they’re often very reminiscent of paintings of the Hague School.

Pictures like this one could be any of the many maritime disasters on Dublin Bay, but it’s actually by a Dutch artist and the painting is hanging in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

Shipwreck on a Rocky Coast

It’s surprising to some people in Dublin that we find Dublin Bay so inspiring, but we’re just following in the footsteps of many artists of the past.

We’ve been working through the winter on several jewelry items that capture the colors and drama – and even the wildlife – of Dublin Bay. Much cheerier than a shipwreck too!
