The Triquetra (trinity knot) is one of the best known symbols in Celtic culture. Many cultures have used this symbol and each attached its own meaning to it. The Trinity Knot is a widely recognized symbol used for the past two centuries by Celtic Christians, and before that by pagans and agnostics as a sign of special things and people that are threefold. The Celts worshipped a moon goddess who was associated with waxing, waning, and full moons also used this symbol to represent their deity. The symbol also represents the Norse God Odin, the inner ring binding the symbol together has been hand stamped with the Nordic Runic Script. This symbol containing the braided binding circle emphasizes the unity of three forces. General meanings include the infinite and eternity, protection, equality, and divine femininity
This 1.2 inch sterling silver pendant features an inner braided bronze or .925 Sterling binding ring and 14K gold bezel for your choice of a variety of 5mm round cut stones You can also choose no stone setting at all. The "100% .925 Sterling" version of this pendant still includes the 14K gold stone bezel setting.
Each of these pendants begin as a unique wax model which is then cast in 100% .925 purity sterling silver. The inner ring is cast in Ancient Bronze or Sterling and soldered into place.. The 5.5mm bail is then attached and the the stone setting fabricated separately and soldered into place. The stone is set and all finishing and polishing is performed by hand. A layer of oxidation is applied to the piece and it is re-polished to bring only the raised areas back to a shine to emphasize details. All of the work from the wax model to the casting and stamping, soldering, and finishing is performed by me in house at the Drakenforge studio by me personally.
