Silver Newgrange Spiral Pendant
This Sterling silver Newgrange Spiral Pendant. is inspired by the megalithic art work at Newgrange (Brú na Bóinne in Gaelic), a Neolithic passage tomb built with precise astronomical alignment to the sun, over 5000 years ago. The art is one of the most remarkable features of the Newgrange monument. Some of it is a spectacular combinations of spirals, lozenges, chevrons, triangles and arrangements of parallel lines and arcs.
There are many theories as to the meaning of the carvings; the most popular representing the cycles of the sun
The single spiral, believed to represent the sun.
The double spiral representing the sun’s journey over the course of the year.
The Triskele is believed to represent the unity of the elements of earth; air, fire and water.
This Sterling silver Newgrange Spiral Pendant is handmade in my workshop in Dublin, Ireland. The pendant hangs seamlessly from a belcher chain attached to a concealed loop on the back.
Hallmarked in the Irish assay office in Dublin castle and stamped ‘Made in Ireland’.
