I planned on making a bracelet, but ran out of the champagne rings Wink

So here is a little sample of Abhainn



Now to see if I can make some earrings too.

Or one could just Anglicise it.

Lol. Actually, that's not all that unusual. One of those was Scots-Gaelic, and in Irish-Gaelic there are three major dialects (Munster, Ulster, and Connacht; unfortunately, Leinster Irish-Gaelic has too few native speakers to be considered its own dialect anymore), countless minor dialects, and there have been multiple (not entirely successful) attempts to create a 'standardized' Irish because someone speaking one dialect will not necessarily be able to understand someone using a different dialect.

Abhainn can be pronounced as either ah-veen or ah-ween. I've also heard ow-in, ow-en, a-vawn, and a-vin, as well as, a few others. I lean towards either ah-veen or ah-ween.

Both 'bh' and 'mh' in Irish will either be pronounced as a 'v' or a 'w' depending on where it is in the word, whether it is surrounded by the broad vowels ('o', 'a', and 'u') or the slender vowels ('i' and 'e'), and, of course, what region you are from/dialect you are using.

Oh no, please don't do that! If you try to use English pronunciation of Irish (or any other Gaelic language) words you will end up with an awful sounding mess and a lot of frustration.

Haha, upon hearing that I realized that my pronounciation (ABB-HA-JINN) was completely off Razz

I think it lays nice and is comfortable. The weave is loose, so it lays fairly flat.

Here it is on me ... it is a little snug on me though since I made it for someone with a smaller wrist Wink
