In 1993 I opened a small Celtic shop I named Kathleen's of Dublin in Portland Oregon. Traveling to Ireland and the Celtic Isles for many years I became familiar with the folklore and legends, the Celtic people, their history and the wonderful mythology of the Celts. Being of Celtic blood myself it all struck a cord.
Fast forward 18 years...My collections are inspired by all things Celtic, sacred sites and holy wells, standing stones and Celtic crosses, the Book of Kells an ancient Irish manuscript, Celtic folklore and mythology.
Working with Celtic symbols in metal and real gemstones such as Amethyst, Garnet, Aquamarine, Lapis, and Connemara Marble from Ireland seemed like a natural extension of my travels and life changing experiences in the Celtic Isles.
