The Triskelion is a Celtic jewel of deep meaning, and the most iconic Celtic jewel of my Talisman collection, for being perhaps, the best known and more popular Astur-Celtic symbol. But, do you really know what it represents?
The triskelion is made up of three united spirals, which represent evolution, growth and balance between body, mind and soul. For the Celts, it had a sacred meaning and could only be used for the Druids, for whom it symbolized perpetual learning and the trinity, past, present and future.
We find this iconic Astur-Celtic symbol in representations of Celtic art and magic, an ancient and rich culture, more than 3.000 years old, that Asturians share with other communities in northern Spain, as well as with other countries of Europe.
The first spiral of the triskelion simbolizes the body and the earth, representing the strength and stability, the conexion with te nature and our ability to root ourselves and find balance. In my jewelry designs I use gold as precious metal, as its warmth and strength perfectly reflects the earthy qualities of the triskelion. I also incorporate natural gemstones such as rose quartz, garnets, tourmalines or the black jet , which accentuate the connection with the earth and bring calm and protective energy to the piece.
The second spiral of the triskelion is associated with the mind and the sea, it is a symbol of fluidity and transformation. The sea teaches us to adapt to constant changes in life, and to flow with the tides. In my designs I ad touches of blue topaz, aquamarines, blue chalcedony and the beautiful pearls, which evoke the beauty and serenity of the ocean. These gemstones combine with the delicate curves of the triskelion, create a sense of movement and evoke the aquatic energy in all of us.
The third spiral of the triskelion, represents heaven, the domain of the spiritual and trascendent. It simbolizes wisdom, intuition and the power of the mind. In my creations I use precious gemstones as sapphire, in its variety of colors, or moonstone, which are associated with spiritual connection and mental clarity. These gems, alpng with the gold of triskelion, capture the essence of heaven and add a touch of mistery and magic to my designs.
The deep meanig of the triskelion as a Celic jewel, has led me to capture it in a diptychwhich I deliver with each piece in this collection. In this way, whoever receives it as a gift, can value this present even more.
