Contemporary jewellery brand Enibas surpassed all expectations with the success of a special edition charity pendant in aid of Brú Columbanus. Launched earlier this year, the commemorative pendant for internationally renowned singer songwriter Colin Vearncombe (Black) has raised more than €22,000 for the charity which provided support and accommodation to Colin’s family in his final days in January 2016.

The pendant, which is now sold out, was designed by Sabine Lenz of Enibas in conjunction with Colin’s wife Camilla and sons, and was inspired by a piece which Colin wore almost continually of a smiling sun. The pendant piece carried the Irish inscription “Saol Iontach”, a nod to Colin’s international hit Wonderful Life. The 500 limited edition sterling silver, 50 9ct Gold and a limited number 18ct gold pieces were shipped around the world with Colin’s fanbase getting behind the worthy cause.

Pictured at the cheque presentation were Max Vearncombe with his son Arthur, Polly Barrett, More Savage (Enibas Worshop manager), Clare Seward (Goldsmith in Enibas), Len Lipitch, Sabine Lenz (Enibas designer), Anne Maria O’Connor (Bru Columbanus), Margaret O’Farrell (Board Bru Columbanus), Camilla Griehsel, Colin’s wife,  Marius Vearncombe, Steve Baker (Camilla Griehsel, manager) and Caitriona Jardine-Otway (Enibas Retail Manager).
