Devenish Tower Earrings
Our Devenish Tower Silver Earrings are solid 925 sterling silver representing County Fermanagh's famous 'Devenish Tower'. These form part of our 'MI-NI' Collection in which I have made jewellery pieces to represent each of Northern Ireland's (NI) six Counties.
Our Devenish Tower earrings are each approximately 2cms (H) by 0.4cm (W). Whereas the actual 6th Century Tower is approximately 30 metres, 100ft, tall and can be climbed by internal ladders if you have the energy. The name translates from Irish, 'Daimhinis' means 'Ox Island' is an island in Lower Lough Erne, County Fermanagh, measuring approximately 1.25 miles long by 0.6 miles wide.
Shown here as drop earrings but 'stud' earrings can also be made. We also sell matching necklaces and charms, perhaps you would like the whole set.
The whole experience was amazing from start to finish. Ruth was so friendly and accommodating making us feel as if we were her lifelong friends. We loved making our rings (with lots of Ruth’s help of course) and we felt so proud of ourselves. Ruth and Steve welcomed us into their beautiful home and garden and provided us with a delicious array of food and drinks in their outdoor igloo. Overall it was a relaxing, creative and bonding experience which we would highly recommend.

If you're looking for that unique treat or experience,then a jewellery making workshop with Ruth at NI Silver is a must! I had such a fun time not only watching Ruth demonstrate her skill, but then making my own bespoke silver ring and of course enjoying Steve's great hospitality. What a perfect day! Thank you.
My husband and I were gifted a workshop experience and we weren't too sure what to expect, but Ruth at NI Silver made the morning an absolute pleasure. She was knowledgeable and funny, chatting away whilst showing us the steps we needed to do, and then stepping back to let us have a good go! We all had a great time and I would 100% recommend the workshop experience to anyone - I'll definitely be back some time for another go!
