"Solvar has being selling its bespoke line of Irish and Celtic themed Jewellery as far back as when the Wynn’s owed and ran the hotel. This must date back to early 1960’s. In the late 60’s and early 70’s a couple by the name of Prichard’s then took over the running of the Glendalough Cottage Gift Shop. Back in those days the shop only opened in time for St. Patrick’s day and closed for the winter by the end of September. Then, nearly all our United States visitors travelled by either self-drive car or where chauffeur driven and when visiting Dublin a trip to Glendalough and the shop was a must do trip, as it is today. Solvar has been a key supplier to Casey’s Glendalough Cottage Gift Shop for over 50 more years, delighted to say both companies have stood the test of time."

Together with other leading Irish artists, they created a unique range of artefacts that take their inspiration from our rich cultural heritage and the contemporary world. Each piece starts with an inspiring thought, an image or an emotion and is given a physical form in beautifully polished bronze by our craftspeople. Click here to find out more

Most of the pieces are still made in the traditional way in our own workshop by Irish men and women, specially trained in the old casting methods, meticulous assembly and delicate hand finishing. These skills take years to acquire. We have consistently applied the highest standards of design and quality control in the production of these exquisite gifts. We ship worldwide and are renowned for our finest grade pewter. It's now fashionable to buy pewter for everyday use. Pewter is easy to store, never wears out and on special occasions it provides a splendid display. About the only thing that has changed in pewter manufacture is the materials. Originally pewter was made from a composition of lead and tin. Today, the raw materials consist of 95% tin with the balance made up of copper and antimony. Our pewter products are guaranteed lead-free and quite safe to be used for all kinds of food and drink. Click to find out more
