|Debbie Field's Claddagh|
Having dinner with a wonderful friend recently I couldn't help but notice her claddagh ring. All through the evening I kept thinking to myself.....Has she always worn that? Why haven't I photographed it before now? When I finally asked it turns out I wasn't losing my mind at all.
I had been round several months ago telling her about my work and this blog. I must have just written the piece about the Claddagh and was explaining how much I loved mine, how I wore it, how you notice them from a mile away and feel that connection.
Now, Debbie's family on her father's side is Irish, she's a Tyrell. Her mother was English and for what ever reason she had never had a claddagh ring as a child or as an adult. It turns out that after that evening her husband, Geoff, had searched out this beautiful silver claddagh in a Leicester jewellers. He got the kids to keep it a secret and presented it to her as a Christmas present. Aaaw. Nice one Geoff.
