A traditional Celtic design pendant cast in stainless steel
Based on a traditional Celtic stone carving design, this graphic cross pendant is a modern take on a traditional Celtic knot motif. Cast in stainless steel, the pendant measures 2.5 inches in length and comes on a stainless steel woven chain.
The intricate Celtic knot (snaidhm Ceilteach in Scottish Gaelic) is a staple of Gaelic and Caledonian art for the past several millennia. While these delicate spirals and step patterns were common in Celtic art before Christian influences in the area, the designs soon found their way into early Christian artwork by the mid 400s AD. Many of the finest examples can be seen on burial crosses and stone grave markers across Scotland and Ireland.
