The Inspirational Wilds Of Gleninchaquin, Co Kerry

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to visit friends in Kenmare, Co Kerry. And unless you see it for yourself, it really is so hard to imagine the sheer untamed beauty of the place. You can really understand the phrase 40 shades of green!

We hired a car and drove around the Ring of Beara, the Ring of Kerry and also into the Gleninchaquin Park. The scenery changed at every turn, and literally took your breath away! This part of Ireland still possesses the raw natural beauty of the land. If you ever get the chance to visit, do so, you won't be disappointed!

When I came back, I wanted to make a simple bead that reflected the landscape. I made this from a couple of layers of green, and when you hold it up to the light it has a beautiful semi transparent, semi opaque quality. I've added a fossil colour to represent the wild rocks and some clear dots that represent the natural waterfalls found. I hope you like it!

It will be going up for sale on my website in the next couple of days!

Thanks for reading!
