Celtic Shield Pendant available with darkened or polished background. The chain is a belcher/rolo and the closure is a strong lobster clasp. The inspiration for the design comes from the exquisite detail on The Ardagh Chalice. 


About the Design

Dating back to the 8th Century, The Ardagh Hoard is a collection of 8th Century Irish Christian metalwork consisting of The Ardagh Chalice, a plainer stemmed cup in copper-alloy, and four brooches. The best known piece of the hoard is The Ardagh Chalice. The chalice is a large, two-handled silver cup, decorated with gold, gilt bronze, brass, lead pewter and enamel, which has been assembled from 354 separate pieces; this complex construction is typical of early Christian Irish metalwork. The Ardagh hoard is on display in the National Museum of Ireland. 


Where is it made?

Each Celtic Shield pendant is individually handcrafted to order in my workshop in Dublin, Ireland.
