Poppy Melia on designing her new embossment -

‘About eighty years ago my maternal grandmother’s neighbour in Kenmare found a Viking hoard under a rock, when he was clearing one of his fields. It was a hoard consisting mainly of battle axes. He brought everything up to the National History Museum in Dublin. They displayed all except this gold frog, because they didn’t think it was connected with the hoard and they couldn’t work out its origin, but it definitely was found with all the battle axes under that rock. So, the farmer gave it to my grandmother. My mother has it now and she wears it almost all the time. She is going to leave it to me and I will treasure it.

I love all things water, so what with this special heirloom and all the frogs we observe in our old family water well, I decided to use a frog for my logo.’
