This Book of Kells large tie tack consists of a single intertwining cord design, called a Trinity Knot, in oxidised sterling silver. This piece is hand-finished in our workshop in Orkney.
This collection is based on a beautiful illuminated Gospel book from the late 8th Century. The pattern of intertwining cords is derived from Eastern and Celtic art, and passed into the repertoire of British and Irish artists from the 6th to 9th Century. The interlacing design is found on metalwork and sculpted stone, as well as illuminated Gospel Books.
