Celtic earrings handcrafted on the Wild Atlantic Way by Paul Connolly.
Irish handcrafted Celtic earrings.
The shield knot is an ancient and nearly universal symbol. The shield knot has been used for thousands of years by a variety of cultures for protection and warding. While the common design is most often associated with the Celts and ancient Norse, the most basic form is much older. Demonstrating the complexity of life, this stylized cross with the circle represents the sun, reminds us that while on earth we are still connected to the afterlife.
The horizontal arms of the cross symbolize Earth – the temporal life.
The vertical arms reach to the heavens – the spiritual life.
The circle lets us know that everything in life is connected. Within the center of this motif is the universal symbol for the four directions. Thus ensuring protections where ever one travelled.
