I confess. I am an Italian-Polish-Slovakian-American drawn inexplicably to Celtic knot work. I can’t really explain it–maybe it is the way they draw your eyes in and don’t let them out, maybe it is the way they show the interconnectedness of all things, maybe it is just because they are pretty. Clearly I am not the only one tied up in Celtic knots, as these talented Etsy sellers demonstrate.
Sapphire Celtic Puzzle Ring by nellyvansee
This beautiful ring is a Celtic knot you can untie. I have always been a fan of puzzle rings, although the last one I had ended up refusing to go back into its proper shape. Nelly Van Cleeff is a full time jewelry maker from Montreal, and this white gold Celtic Puzzle Ring is a ring-lover’s dream. Did I mention I love rings?
|Maple Bowl by menapace|
The walnut lid of this hand turned maple bowl by Garn Menapace shows off the intricacy and complexity of Celtic knot work. I imagine myself as small as an ant just wandering endlessly along the smooth wooden pathways.
