St. Kevins blackbird pendant
Birds have appealed to our imagination from the beginning of time.
Some of the earliest jewellery found depicts birds.
One of my favourite bird legends is that of St Kevin , founder of Glendalough .
He was a hermit and lover of animals and birds .
One Day when he was praying with his hands outstretched through the window of his tiny hermit cell, a blackbird landed in his palm, he stayed still,she built her nest and laid her egg, in an act of kindness he didn’t move until the baby bird had flown.
