The Hand of O'Neil

The Hand of O'Neil

From history to genealogy, from past to present this silver hand has been inspired by the red hand taken from the O’Neil coat of arms. The name “O’Neil” literally means “champion” and in it’s original red form the hand is the symbol of the myth that the Kingdom of Ulster was won by the winner of a boat race and “whosoever's hand was the first to touch the shore of Ireland, so shall he be made the king”. The race was won by the king who upon seeing that he was losing the race, cut off his hand and threw it to the shore - thus winning the kingship.

Handmade with love, this gift is the symbol of a happy reunion sent from the O’Neil family in Liverpool to their long lost cousins in the United States - spread from New York to Maryland and Ohio. A present to keep and treasure and I know this piece is in a safe hand.

Pendant size approx: 1.8cm x 2.5cm.

Chain length: 16".
