Quilled Celtic Knot - Quilled Eternal Circle, Shamrock and Triquetra

This quilled Celtic knot is made using multi-strip quilling and beehive quilling. The combined symbolism is packed with  meaning.

The Eternal Circle- The interlacing lines of the Celtic Knot stands for "no beginning, no ending, the continuity of everlasting love and binding together or intertwining of two soul or spirits."

Trinity Knot, also known as a Triquetra. -  Christians believe that the three points represent the three elements of the trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (or Holy Ghost). To the ancient Celts it symbolised the  earth, air, and water. On a more spiritual level, it has also been known to symbolize life, death, and rebirth.

The Irish Shamrock is the traditional symbol of the Trinity.

Completing this was a study in patients and was rather difficult to do. The interlacing lines got me tied up in knots myself , but in the end I managed to complete it. The biggest hurdle was to get it to stick to the backing. Kept getting stuck to my fingers and everywhere else but!! I have managed to get the beehive in neatly though.

Tips for beehive quilling is available here.
