Declan Killen have been working at their Fade Street premises since they were established in 1985. Each piece is individually handcrafted and hallmarked. Each piece of Declan’s jewellery begins with a drawing of the design from which a master pattern is made.The basic shape of the piece is then cast, after which it is meticulously finished by hand thus creating a high quality piece of jewellery. The jewellery is made in silver, gold and platinum metals using all the traditional methods of craftsmanship and also incorporating modern techniques in the finishing processes
The Story is as follows:
When Fionn Mac Cumhaill, leader of the Fianna was a young boy, he was sent to live with a wise man named Finnegas on the banks of the river Boyne.It was said that in the dark, shaded pools of the Boyne, beneath the Hazel tree, lived the salmon of knowledge.The frist one to eat it would acquire all the knowledge in the world. One day, Finnegas was successful and he caught the salmon.He left Fionn cooking it while he went inside, warning him not to take even the smallest taste. While cooking, a bubble appeared in the skin of the salmon, and Fionn pierced it with his finger.The flesh of the fish burned his thumb, and he put it in his mouth to soothe it.Alas, Finnegas' work was for nothing, for in that moment, Fionn acquired all the knowledge of the world. He went on to become the leader of the Fianna, immortalised in Irish Legend.
