St Patricks Day is coming in March and I wanted to share a few Irish Celtic Jewelry ideas! Even though this is right around the corner on March 17, there is still time to make something – in fact, if you love beads, there is ALWAYS time to create!
Irish jewelry ideas for St. Patrick’s Day
First of all, anything green or with a clover will work, but below are a few jewelry making ideas for inspiration!
There earrings are a beautiful and simplistic design with Swarovski Crystal and Celtic design charms. See the materials list here:
This Sterling Silver Tiger Bead from Carlo Biagi is the perfect charm for bracelets themed around a sports team, spiritual energies or for animal lovers. The large diameter hole has no threading and it is compatible with many popular bracelets.
Over the years this European charm has been very popular due to its symbolism of this ferocious animal.
Tiger beads and symbolism
The tiger has always been an important symbol, and throughout history you see it’s influence in art, literature, or as a mascot.
Here are just a few interesting facts:
The tiger is the largest cat! For those of us who love cats, it is a dream to own such a huge kitty.
It is one of the animals in the Chinese Zodiac, the next year of the Tiger is 2022.
The Detroit Tigers football team was named after the nickname of the Detroit Light Guard Military Unit
There are 9 different sub species: three are extinct and the remaining six are endangered
This popular sterling silver bead is also on my bead “endangered list”. There are only a handful of these beads available and they will not be restocked.
If you are waiting for just the right time to buy this bead, then NOW would be the time. (When they are all gone, and officially extinct, I will update this page.)
To answer the most asked question – yes they will fit on PANDORA bracelets and are also compatible with Troll, Chamilia, and other trendy charm bead bracelets.
The bead hole is 5mm and is smooth (no threading) making them easy to slip on an off any bracelet chain.
This Murano glass bead is fashioned after the colors of the Bengal Tiger. Together these two beads are a great combo to represent this charismatic cat.
Leather bracelets and necklaces are always in style and are a more casual type of jewelry to wear every day. It’s really easy to put together a new look for your arm or neck with the versatile Carlo Biagi black leather cord.
