- Celtic knot brooch – Recycled Spoon
Celtic knot brooch –This brooch is a wonderful and simple recreation of modified triquetra celtic knot design. I have given the design variation a sculptural length and slimness. This affords it a more modern, contemporary feel and ties in with the donor source material, namely the spoon.
Just like we use knots to bind or connect in the physical world, we use celtic knot art and jewellery to tie and bind our spiritual selves to the timeless, non physical spiritual world and ancestors. These knots are complete loops that have no start or finish and could be said to represent eternity whether this means loyalty, faith, friendship or love. Only one thread is used in each design which symbolizes how life and eternity are interconnected.
Each one is hand pierced from the centre of an old dessert spoon. Each one is completely unique and very special. The design is original, handcrafted and recycled.
Included with brooch is the ‘donor’ spoon from which it was cut. This is a lovely object to keep with the brooch when it is not being worn.
Handmade and recycled in Cambridge.
