Celtic earrings handcrafted on the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland by Paul Connolly. Intricate Celtic design copied from the Cross-slab, Aberlemno, Angus, Scotland.
Three Pictish stones have survived at the village of Aberlemno : a tilting pillar covered in enigmatic symbols and two cross-slabs. These details come from the older of the two slabs, which probably dates from the 8th century. On one side, it bears a Celtic cross, carved in high-relief and set against a background of interlacing, snake-like monsters. On the reverse, a pitched battle between helmeted and bare-headed warriors is shown. This may represent the battle of Nechtansmere, where the Picts had won their famous victory over the Angles. This battlefield was just a few miles away from Aberlemno, and surviving Anglican helmets, with their long nose-guards, are similar to those portrayed on the stone.
Polished to a supreme finish, these handmade Celtic earrings from Ireland are a quality Irish gift for ladies.
Non-allergenic surgical steel earwires.
