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.
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!

All I can say is WOW! This is an absolutely stunning piece which will complement the femininity of the wearer. It is stylish yet pleasingly ingenious in it’s simplicity. The craftsmanship is just beautiful. It is constructed of heavyweight silver and hangs gracefully on a chain or cord. It arrived incredibly fast, elegantly packaged in a green velvet pouch with a thoughtful card discussing the meaning of the Pentacle/Pentagram. I couldn’t ask for a better online shopping experience, 5 stars to Woot & Hammy as a company and 5 stars to the lovely new addition of this Pentacle to my jewelry collection.
This is beautiful. I have been looking for a pendant for a very long time. For over a year I kept searching for all three icons. Moon, raven and pentagram included in it. I usually found 2 out of 3, no luck untill I found your webste. It was packaged wonderfully and included a cleaning method that I was unaware of. Plus, it arrived ahead of schedule. I definintely will be back for more.
This is officially my favorite pendant ever! I haven't taken it off since I got it. I love the size of it and how thin it is When you look at it from the side. I don't have a single pendant like this! I will definitely be buying more from this company.
I recently purchased my wife a beautiful pentagram pendant and chain and I was so impressed by the quality and service i decided I'd order some earrings and a couple rings for her. I received an email with a 20% coupon code. I could not get it to work so I emailed woot and hammy. Not only did they respond the same day, they made me my own personalized discount code. Now that's service! Amazing craftsmanship, great prices even better service. We will be back for more...
I am so happy with my new Flower of Life pendant. It is so beautiful and just the right size for my taste.
Woot & Hammy have the best customer service and beautiful jewelry. I have bought a number of pieces from them and love them all.
Along with everything else I have ordered, I love them, and I wear them a lot. I am allergic to nickel so I usually only buy sterling silver, I love Woot & Hammy, they have such reasonable prices and beautiful pieces. I'm looking for a bumblebee necklace also looking for star or Xmax tree earings.
I am giving you a 5 star review because I was very impressed not only with my pendant, but with the presentation and service. When I saw a hummingbird in my terrace for the first time, the little bird stole my heart. I was in awe. Thank you for making possible for me to remember that moment. Nitza
Love the bracelet, yet had to purchase an extender for it. It’s PERFECT! Love the silver jewelry.
Norma-Ken are super. Items wrapped well and very pretty! Thank you so much!
My Mother-in-Law lost her Husband a few years ago and keeps finding like white feathers in strange places. She tells me they are from her late Husband. So when I found the Finding Feathers Ring I thought it was just the gift she needed. I wanted to see the ring before forwarding it to her in England. I was delighted to see the package had arrived sooner than expected. As I opened the padded envelope that had protected it on its journey to me, I found it was again protected in a sealed clear bag, which allowed me to see that it had been gift wrapped in the most delightful floral paper. I unwrapped it to find a lovely box and inside was the most stunningly beautiful Finding a Feather Ring. I was taken back with the attention to delay and the the caring manager in which this ring was presented and how well protected it was. I am sure I will be doing a lot more business with this wonderful company. With Thanks
What can I say: FABULOUS, BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS , SOOO SWEET!!!! Love this Sweet necklace! Perfect for some one WHO IS CRAZY ABOUT THE. MOON, ME!!!🌖🌙
Coming in such a precious package, I felt like Christmas!! Thank you!!!
Absolutely love my ring!! Fits perfectly!! Love the details!! The customer service is EXCELLENT. And OUTSTANDING!!!!😊💕 I will be telling EVERYONE, THIS IS THE PERFECT PLACE TO SHOP!!
I love this ring. It is dainty, nicely polished and beautiful. Presentation is everything to me and it arrived early Beautifully wrapped.
Both the necklace I have purchased and the overall service were up to my expectation and exceeded. I liked the beautiful and ample amount of parcel wrappings came with the necklace, it reflects how much you guys are serious in what you do.
Another thing to mention is the time it takes to get your questions answered whether via email or facebook was satisfying.
All in all, I enjoyed my experience with woot&hammy, and certainly recommend them.
I found a picture of the Love of Angels Heart-Shaped Wings Necklace on Pinterest. I thought it was so beautiful and I decided to order it. It arrived in a very timely manner, very neatly packaged. When I opened the package it was just as the review title says - JUST PERFECT - needless to say I am very pleased with the necklace- the chain and the pendant have a beautiful shine. Would not hesitate to order again from Woot & Hammy. The owners are very cordial and wanted to make sure that I was pleased with my purchase. THANKS WOOT & HAMMY
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with woot&hammy! I found this beautiful pendant because I was looking for a necklace to honor the baby I recently lost to miscarriage. My husband and I feel this baby will always be an important part of our family, and this necklace will allow Angel to be represented in our family photos. The symbolism of the heart with the angel wings is perfect for this! When I ordered, there was a question about how I found the company, and I answered with an explanation of my Google search. I was so pleasantly surprised to receive a very thoughtful and kind email from Norma the very next day. I knew right then I had made the right choice with this necklace, but the experience only got better!
When the necklace arrived, it was so beautifully packaged. It was such a treat to slowly unwrap it an enjoy each layer and all the special care and details. It was wrapped in a lovely, vibrant, floral tissue paper. There was a fun scratcher card for a future discount and a little blue velvet bag to store the necklace in after opening.
The necklace, itself, is very high quality and sturdy. The details are crisp, and the pendant gleams in the light. Even the chain catches the light in such a dazzling way! I am truly delighted with my pendant, and I will definitely be looking to woot&hammy again for any future jewelry needs!
