About celtic knots and my bear design--
Celtic knotwork patterns have been used for centuries as symbols of connection, protection, and good luck. And, let’s be honest, because they look awesome.
I made this bear because I've always liked bears and what they represent, but I had a hard time finding one that was neither too cute nor too ferocious. They symbolize strength, compassion, courage and wisdom, but can also be very powerful when pushed too far. This is my second design iteration of the bear. My first attempt didn't capture the quiet strength of the bear. This design captures a good balance: looking friendly and open, and also showing the underlying strength of the bear.
All CelticKnotWorks pieces are proudly handcrafted in the USA. This bear is my original design, designed from scratch. I make these in partnership with my family business, Deva Designs.
The bear is my totem animal and this is is the best depiction of one that I've found. For more visibility I have it hanging from my purse strap. I don't want it hibernating inside of it with my keys.
It came in a timely manner and in a cute little pouch! It was exactly what I wanted! They even included a guide telling you what all the symbols represent. Overall great product and business. I would've added a picture but I already gave it as a gift!
