A witch's knot is a representation of the knot magic practiced by witches in the Middle Ages and was often scratched over doorways to keep away negative energy. This knot is known as a protection symbol because it is possible to draw it in one continuous motion, without ever lifting the pen off the paper.

It is made of two very potent symbols that have been interwoven; one that's universal and one that goes deep into the Gaelic and Celtic cultures and Irish mythology.

The circle is a universal symbol that has been around since the dawn of man. In all that time it has been used to represent an almost endless number of concepts, a few of which are: the sun, the earth, the moon, the planets, God, eternity, perfection, totality, the continuity of life, heaven, protection, and the universe.

Likewise, the four-cornered Celtic knot may not be universal but is just as rich culturally, representing as it does:

  • Four Gaelic seasonal festivals: Samhain, Beltane, Imbolc & Lughnasadh
  • Four Druidic gods who each rule a quadrant of the earth
  • Brigid the Celtic Queen of the four fires, with her four hands of wisdom, earth, heart and head
  • The four treasures of the Tuatha De Danann
  • Good luck, as in a four-leaf clover
  • The four elements: earth, wind, fire and water
  • The four seasons
  • North, south, east and west

And yet, despite all that, these earrings have an unassuming simplicity and lightness, and an elegance that let them stand on their own simply as pretty earrings.

Perfect and meaningful

I love the earrings, Norma & Ken! The witches knot is an important family symbol. The crest of my mother's mother's family features it. When my mother saw my earrings, she wept. I'll definitely be ordering more!
