Independence, adventure, and bittersweet feelings. Send them off with joy and a reminder of your love and support.
It was a gift to my sister. She left Ireland about 15 years ago aged 18 and has lived in London, Milan and Canada since. The phrase 'your life your journey' is perfect for her and she loves that it is in Irish. Its a little piece of home she always has with her.
I bought my Croí álainn for myself. I lived overseas for a few years and when I was home one summer, I saw the necklace and wanted to bring something back with me that would remind me of home. I wore it every day when abroad and has become a part of my journey to return home.
I bought a gold 'Las mo shlí' necklace for my daughter. She was moving to Manchester to study Radiography. My 1st born so a big step for her and a big step for me. I wanted her to have something both sentimental and Irish to take a little piece of home with her on her journey. Las Mo shlí (Light my way) seemed like the perfect phrase to guide her in her new life.
A gift to me from my sister. I was living abroad at the time and she loved sending me little pieces of Ireland to remind me of home. This was my favourite thing that she sent me because it reminded me that while my life journey might take me far from home, I would always take a bit of home with me.
