It is common knowledge that all 4 areas of the UK have national flowers associated with them as well as patron saints. Next Monday, 17 March, Ireland is celebrating the day of its patron saint, St. Patrick. It is customary to wear a shamrock in honour of this day. This plant’s story is that St Patrick used it to explain the Trinity from the Christian religion – the three leaves represent the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

The four-leaf clover is an uncommon variation of the common, three-leaved clover. According to tradition, such leaves bring good luck to their finders, especially if found accidentally.

But it is almost impossible to find a four-leaf clover. So, instead of wasting hours looking for a lucky plant why not just get one made of ... fabric? Such a shamrock will never wilt which means that your luck will be with you at all times!
My shamrock brooches are completely handmade and hand dyed. Every piece is a unique creation. Given as a gift they please those who appreciate craftsmanship and originality. And I am sure that fabric shamrock brooch will thrill a shamrock fan.
