Claddagh Pewter/Stainless Steel Keyring / Keychain The ancient craft of pewter making was revived in Ireland by Paddy Collins in Mullingar in 1974. Paddys son Peter now runs the business and it employs 16 people from the local area. Most of the pieces are still made in the traditional way in our own workshop by Irish men and women, specially trained in the old casting methods, meticulous assembly and delicate hand finishing. These skills take years to acquire. We have consistently applied the highest standards of design and quality control in the production of these exquisite gifts. We ship worldwide and are renowned for our finest grade pewter.
