Triquetra Claddagh Pattern 

Saint Patrick’s Day will soon be upon us once again. Last year, marked the beginning of the pandemic and the cancellation of all the parades. While there will be some virtual celebrations this year we can still only hold out hope for the future. So to try and mark the day this year I have designed this Triquetra Claddagh Pattern. The hands of friendship are holding the heart, which shows love to form the central part of the design. The crown for loyalty sits above the heart and a circle intertwined with shamrock and Triquetra knots frames the picture. Click the link to view more Stained Glass Patterns

Claddagh A Brief History

The Claddagh is one of Ireland’s most recognized international symbols. Originating from the small County Galway fishing village of the same name in Ireland. Countless myths and legends surrounding the origins of the first ring dating as far back as 1700. Credit for the design generally goes to Richard Joyce, a local silversmith. Sometimes used for friendship, “Claddagh” rings are more popular as engagement and wedding rings. Generally, these are the modern meanings of how to wear the ring.

Right-handed with the point of the heart toward the fingertips shows the wearer is “single”. If the heart is pointing to the wrist of the right-hand the meaning is “in a relationship”.
Left-handed with the point of the heart toward the fingertips shows the wearer to be “engaged”. If the heart is pointing to the wrist of the left hand the meaning is “marriage”.
