This original pendant was designed, cast and finished in NYC USA. The Celtic crow skull features intricate knot work creating the Triquetra symbol on the skull. The skull swings freely from a specially designed bail. It comes on your choice of length of silver chain 18 to 30 inches. Please request your length in the message to the seller as you check out.

Refined recycled silver. I use reclaimed pure .925 sterling silver for this piece. It is assayed and sourced here in the US from a 100% green company. No mining.

Christian use:
The symbol has been used by Christians as a sign of the Blessed Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), especially since the Celtic Revival of the 19th century. When modern designers began to display the triquetra as a stand-alone design, it recalled the three-leafed shamrock which was similarly offered as a trinity symbol by Saint Patrick. Some have also suggested that the triquetra has a similarity to the Christian Ιχθυς symbol. The triquetra has been used extensively on Christian sculpture, vestments, book arts and stained glass. It has been used on the title page and binding of some editions of the New King James Version.

A very common representation of the symbol is with a circle that goes through the three interconnected loops of the Triquetra. The circle emphasizes the unity of the whole combination of the three elements.
[edit] Modern use

In contemporary Ireland, It is traditional for a man to give a loved one a trinket such as a necklace or ring signifying his affection towards her. It is believed to represent the three promises of a relationship such as to love, honour, and protect. It is common for the design of the Trinity Knot to be engraved on a wedding ring and attaches to a Claddagh ring [2](another Irish traditional ring given for friendship or engagement).
[edit] Neopaganism

The Trinity Knot holds major significance in neopaganism in that it is believed to represent the three stages of the goddess (Maiden, Mother, and Crone)[3].

Modern Pagans use the triquetra to symbolize a variety of concepts and mythological figures.

Germanic Neopagan groups who use the triquetra to symbolize their faith generally believe it is originally of Norse and Germanic origins. Due to its presence in insular Celtic art, Celtic Reconstructionist Pagans use the triquetra either to represent one of the various triplicities in their cosmology and theology (such as the tripartite division of the world into the realms of Land, Sea and Sky),[4] or as a symbol of one of the specific triple Goddesses, for example, The Morrígan.

The symbol is also sometimes used by Wiccans and some New Agers to symbolize either the Wiccan triple goddess or the interconnected parts of our existence (Mind, Body, and Soul).

Also the triquetra is a symbol of protection in the Wiccan religion.[5] It is also said to represent family; Father, Mother and Child[citation needed].

It is difficult to date the exact origin of the Celtic triquetra, and whether it was first used in a Christian or pagan context; the distinctive interlace/knotwork artistic style did not fully develop until ca. the seventh century A.D., but the triquetra is the simplest possible knot.
