These are one-of a kind necklaces made from Irish bog oak. Trish Rogers made them in the studio next to her home near Craigavon. The fittings are hypoallergenic. Due to the hardness of the wood and the grain of it each piece is one of a kind. Want to know more about bog oak? Read on.
Authenticated by Queens University Belfast (QUB) as being 6,000 years old, the bog oak used by Trish Rogers Originals means customers can wear or display a little piece of Irish history. An extremely hard wood, bog oak has a lustrous jet-black shade after being polished into its final form, with growth lines visible in some pieces, giving added character and depth to the products. Gathering the wood herself from the bog near her home, Trish carefully selects the pieces she thinks are best suited for sculpture or for jewellery.
