    £95.00 Members' price *


    A handmade sterling silver and onyx necklace inspired by Celtic art.

    Celtic art is the European decorative style that emerged from Ireland to Romania in 500 BC to AD 100. Celtic craftsmen adapted ideas from nature to produce wonderfully sophisticated designs featuring spirals, crosses and entwined plant motifs.

    This pendant features an onyx gemstone alongside Celtic knotwork, which is probably the best known style of Celtic design. The intertwined patterns of never-ending lines appealed to the Celts, symbolizing their ideals of eternal life.

    Each necklace is handmade in the Orkney Islands off Scotland by Ortak Jewellery - a studio specialising in traditional silversmithing techniques.

    The pendant measures 4cm long and is supplied on an 18 inch chain.
