This striking pendant is another form of knotwork with its closed ends that make a continuous line and represents eternal life. Notice the over and under weave in the design. To the ancient Celt, this represents the ups and downs we experience during our journey in life as we travel between both the physical and “Other World.” We may have a bad day, but a good day will follow; bad luck will be followed with good luck. When we leave the physical world, (under weave) we become invisible as we have entered the “Other World.” We will, however, return (over weave) sometime in the future for a continuous uninterrupted flow of lines line suggests that there is no end or beginning; our journey through life is seen as infinite. Notice a newborn will have features that resemble their elders or past family members who, according to ancient Celtic culture, have now returning. Celtic warriors called upon their ancestors to join them in battle. Enjoy wearing a reminder of our heritage.
