The Bargain Bead Box: Celtic Inspiration
Updated: Aug 23, 2021
Rich greens and sparkling teal combine with silver findings make up this Celtic collection. Highlights include green aventurine teardrops and leaves, half-matte agate, triquetra, and Dara knot.
As you can see I have already made a set of the aventurine teardrops and a little less than half the chain.
While I researched for inspiration of what to make with this collection I came across a fact I did not know: Celts didn't use silver in their jewelry before the Vikings started sailing, before that the Celts used gold or iron.
I also found two ornamental keys in the same silver tone as the findings above. Keys were an important symbol for Viking women, the keys were a status symbol of the lady of the house.
This collection will be inspired by both the Celts and the Vikings. There will be at least one torc/torq/torque made. At least.
I don't have any favorites this month, they all sing out to me equally.
