Irish Dancer Pendant
Our Irish Dancer Pendant features a celtic knot etched in her skirt. The pendant is rhodium plated to prevent tarnishing
The dancing traditions of Ireland probably grew in close association with traditional Irish music. Travelling dancing masters taught all over Ireland, as late as the 18th and early 19th centuries. During this time, places for competitions and feis' were always small, so there was little room for the Dance Masters to perform. They had to dance on tabletops, sometimes even the top of a barrel. Because of this, the dancing styles were very contained, with hands rigid at the sides, and a lack of arm movement and travelling across the stage. As time went on, larger places for dance competitions and performances were found, so styles grew to include more movement, more dancing across the stage as seen, for example, in Riverdance.
Rhodium Plating is a type of metal plating that prevents an object from being scratched or tarnished and improves the object's color quality.
