Celtic design must run in the family, because Daisy certainly takes after her grandfather! Her doodles and scribbles formed a "rustic" interpretation of a Celtic cross. Steve knew right away he needed to recreate this moment in sterling silver as a family keepsake. We also have insider information that the Easter Bunny is considering bringing Daisy a cross pendant inspired by her design. The interpretation of her design in silver was just too sweet to keep to ourselves so we added it to our website too!
Steve drew his first Celtic cross (left) at age 11. Steve's Grandmother Walker had just been on a trip to Ireland and brought Steve a book about Celtic art, which was his first exposure and got him very excited bout the style. The family then moved to Andover where the art teacher, William MacCrea, taught Celtic art as part of his curriculum, which was very rare in those days. This "wax resist" was done in crayon and India ink at Steve's first art class with MacCrea in January 1969.
