Rise Belfast Necklace

Sale price Price £70.00 Regular price

Our Rise Belfast Necklace Jewellery collection currently consists of silver necklaces and smaller earrings.

The main road between Belfast and Dublin is dominated at the Broadway interchange by the public art ‘Rise’ metal structure which is around 40 metres high and cost between £4000,000 to £500,000.

Over 40 designs were originally submitted and Wolfgang Buttress’ ‘Rise’ won and was built in 2011.

The ‘Rise’ represents a new sun rising to celebrate a new chapter in the history of Belfast (Wiki).

As ever in Belfast the ‘Rise’ sculpture was quickly given a few unofficial nicknames,  the ones that we know about are the ‘Balls on the Falls’ and ‘the Westicles’.   Do you know of any other nicknames for the ‘Rise’ sculpture?
