Celtic Art is often found on relics of the past, including the intricate celtic art of the Newgrange burial chambers and the extraordinary detail of the artistry within the Book of Kells, all of which often inspire artists of today. Celtic art was given to us by a race known as the Celts who first appeared in Europe around the 5th century BC. They were a ferocious and warlike people who were very industrious and who were amongst the first to master agriculture. They mastered other crafts such as weaving and metalwork and it is here the first examples or celtic art appeared. Today's craftsmen trawl through such rich heritage to uncover these unique designs to give us today's collections of Celtic Jewelry, art and accessories.
