This intricate Triquetra necklace features a piece of blackthorn. Widespread and abundant in woods and hedgerows throughout Ireland, blackthorn is considered one of the Sacred trees in the Celtic world and has long been associated with overcoming obstacles for protection or for a better future. Witches were said to use blackthorn wands as it was seen as having powerful magical properties.
Celtic knots date back to the 3rd to 4th century B.C. Drawn in one continuous line, suggesting a continuous movement of time, they represent infinity and eternal life. They symbolize faith, declare love & unity between people, and even protect against evil spirits. The iconic Triquetra (or Trinity knot) has a myriad of symbolic interpretations. Pagans treasure it as a representation of the forces of Nature, earth, fire and water. On a more spiritual level it is seen to symbolize life, death and rebirth. It was latterly adapted by Christians to represent the three elements of the holy Trinity.
