Commemorative Colin Vearncombe Pendant Raises over  €20,000 for Brú Columbanus.

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) & Caitriona Jardine-Otway (Enibas Retail Manager).

One of Ireland's leading contemporary jewellery brands 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, 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.
Speaking at a special presentation to Brú Columbanus in Schull over the weekend, designer Sabine Lenz, Enibas said "We are incredibly proud to hand over a cheque for €22,390 to Brú Columbanus. It was the most special project that  I have worked on and it was a privilege to be able to honour Colin and his work. The story and sentiment behind the pendant captured the imagination of so many and it is fantastic to see people wear them proudly. The pendant is also a reminder that it is a "Wonderful Life" and we should make the most
