Celtic knots are a variety of knots and stylized graphical representations of knots used for decoration, used extensively in the Celtic style of insular art. These knots are most known for their adaptation for use in the ornamentation of Christian monuments and manuscripts, such as the 8th-century St. Teilo Gospels, the Book of Kells and the Lindisfarne Gospels. Most are endless knots, and many are varieties of basket weave knots.

Excluding Sales Tax

  • The pendant was created by imprinting a pattern on the copper, fold forming it, pressing it into a shield form then saw piercing it and oxidizing.  A piece of brass was pressed into the shield form and  the copper  piece was attached to it with screws.  A curved piece of copper was then attached to the top of the shield piece for the chain to pass through.  The chain is hand woven copper wire in the Viking knit pattern.
