Fáilte ~ Welcome
My name is Amy and I am a Celtic Australian living on unceded indigenous lands. I would firstly like to acknowledge the traditional owners, past, present and emerging here on lutruwita - Tasmania, Australia.
My ancestors hail from the distant lands of Ireland, Scotland and England, and I am deeply inspired by the history, archaeology, mythologies, and folkloric traditions of those places. I identify as a Celtic Woman and feel a strong desire to reclaim and recreate the aesthetics of the Gaelic and Pictish cultures, drawing on the plethora of examples in art, sculpture and metalwork retained and rediscovered from times long past. This love of all things Celtic has motivated me to create my own Celtic jewellery using beautiful, ethically made, plated Britannia pewter charms and findings from a small team of jewellery casters in California, USA, for sale through my online shop, as well as source and sell other Celtic styled wares only available at my physical market stall.
I also feel it is deeply important to live a life that is inspired by compassion for my home the earth and for my fellow earthlings. As such, I donate 100% of the profits of my sales to four very worthy causes that are close to my heart, covering just my expenses while my time making, packaging and selling at markets and online is for free. I call this 'Crafted for Compassion'. If you have any questions about my process or purpose, please don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope that these pieces help you manifest an appreciation and connection with Celtic heritage and invoke a sense of wonder at a culture steeped in myth, magic, love and camaraderie, as well as giving you an opportunity to make a warm-hearted difference in a sometimes challenging world.
