Celtic Knot Works 

Even the humblest Irish hedgerow has its share of primroses and new growth. To capture that inspiring vibe, Celtic Knot Works presents four springtime favorites.

“Spread Your Wings” reads the inscription on the cheerful Celtic Butterfly pendant. The Celtic Dragonfly is one of our best-selling designs, with a popular, simple inscription of “Joy”. 

At the heart of every Celtic garden belongs the Tree of Life, with matching Celtic knots forming the tree’s branches and roots. The Lucky Shamrock is ornamented with three traditional spirals.
