A traditional Celtic knot design hammer pendant in pewter and brass with stainless steel chain
Based on traditional Celtic knot designs, this anchor-shaped hammer pendant is a perfect blend of Viking and Celtic styles. Cast in pewter and brass with a silver wash, the pendant measures just over 1.75 inches in length and comes on a 22-inch 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. A variety of endless or basket knot design, the Celtic knot can be found throughout ancient and modern Celtic artwork. 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.
