Product Description

HISTORY
LOVESPOONS
The custom of giving a carved wooden spoon as a love token originated in Wales as far back as the 1600's when a man would carve the handle of a spoon for his betrothed. By Victorian times the carvings were quite elaborate and the custom of giving a lovespoon for a special occasion included loved ones, family members and friends. Each spoon will have a special meaning as indicated by the symbols carved on it.
TRISKELE
A design of three interlocking spirals and most common in Celtic art. Fine examples are found at the Neolithic tomb site of Newgrange in Ireland, about 3200 BC, on stone carvings. There are several interpretations of its meaning - the continuity of life, or the relationship between earth, water and sky. Another theory is Motherhood and pregnancy, each spiral representing three months.
MARCASITE JEWELLERY
Marcasite jewellery is made up of pieces of Pyrite (Fool's Gold) normally set into Silver.
