This is my original design depicting the traditional Celtic Claddagh encircled with Celtic Knot work. The pendant is created with a wooden disk that measures 1.5" in diameter and is first painted black. The pen and ink design is reproduced on parchment style paper to give it a vintage feel. It is then applied to the disk with several coats of sealer to protect the design. A brilliant silver bail is attached to the back of the pendant using marine grade glue. It comes with a 24" waxed cotton cord that I tie into a sliding knot.
The necklace comes on a card with the Celtic Claddagh meaning printed on the front. Because it is wood the pendant is nice and light and very comfortable to wear. It would make a wonderful present for anyone that connects with the symbolism and meaning of the Claddagh.
The Claddagh Design is depicted by two hands clutching a heart complete with crown and epitomizes the expression of lasting love and eternal friendship. The heart symbolizes Love, the hands Friendship and the crown Fidelity.
