Even though wolves are now extinct in Ireland, ancient Celtic tribes had a close affinity for them. One of their legends had it that the wolf chased the sun each day, catching it and devouring it at dusk, so that the moon could safely rise.

Indeed, the Celtic moon goddess Cerridwen's companion was a wolf. And the Celts also believed that wolves could take human form – werewolves – when the moon rose.

In that spirit, this necklace shows a wolf baying at a crescent moon. The entire composition is done in an elaborate intermingling of Celtic knots, the moon's knots being cut-out for a more transparent effect and the wolf's knots being emphasized with a darkened antique effect to give it more solidity.

The pendant also features a pentacle embedded very naturally within the moon's knots, and a subtle three-dimensional treatment of the wolf to give the necklace relief.

We wanted to give our customers a way of personalizing their pendants, but many of the pieces in our store are textured on the backside, have an uneven surface, or a design on all sides, making it impossible to engrave them.

Our solution to this problem was to offer engravable charms that you can add onto any necklace. They are small, about 1/2" wide (12 mm) and come with free engraving on the front side (backside engraving is available for an additional charge).

We currently only have these in two shapes (a heart or circle), but will be adding more as time goes on. The charms are also engraved in-house and custom fit with findings to match your pendant.

You can choose engravable charm options right on the product page of any pendant. Below are a few photographs of charms we've made for customers in the past, along with their pendants.
