  1. Every time I wear my Belleek shard pin/pendant I receive compliments and inquiries. People are fascinated by the fact that it used to be a saucer!

    Liam has really been busy; so many more pieces on the website and such a variety!

    Blessings,
    Judy

  2. Liam’s been a very busy guy. He’ll be thrilled to read that you get great comments from his pieces.

    A $20 Gift Certificate is coming your way.

  3. These pieces are so beautiful. I can’t believe something recycled could be so nice. I love the really old flow blue piece from Ireland.

    Love it. Love it.

  4. Liam, your jewelery is amazing! I periodically check your site to drool over it all, but I don’t think you had nearly as many pieces last time I looked, you must be working nonstop these days! Wonderful work, its all incredibly beautiful.

  5. Amanda – $20 Gift Certificate is coming your way.

  6. Liam, I never put two and two together and realized the shards were made by you. I had my husband look at your site with a possible HINT for my Christmas. I love your work! So clever & very unique. Makes me want to find some dishes to mail you to break up and use.

  7. Hey everybody…..thanks for the great comments. I appreciate them all……

    I have been working pretty steady on the jewelry since I returned from Ireland. I have already started production on my Spring collection. There is very little down time in the studio. Oh, and I almost forgot……I have to start planning on Ireland 2009.

    Karen your certificate is on it’s way……

    Liam

  8. Thanks a lot for the certificate!! I have already picked out what the one I love the most and will order it whether my husband took my HINT or not :) MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! Enjoy your Holidays

  9. It’s so hard to pick. All the pieces are beautiful. I particularly like the Shannon Crystal Shard necklace & earrings.

  10. Merle,

    The Shannon Crystal Shard is a wonderful pink color with some great beads. Enjoy your $20 Gift Certificate.
