Celtic Medallions and Pendants

Hello! Thanks for stopping in. I've got several hundred pieces and this is just a start. I'll try to keep adding pieces as time permits.

The division between Norse and Celtic is somewhat arbitrary. One is largely derived from the other, and there is a lot of crossover, so be sure to visit the Viking Medallion Page as well.

Eponis Quatrafoil
#5149; The Eponis Quatrafoil seems to have been a fairly common motif in the early migration period. This one is based on an original in my collection. I have since seen a number of similar peices, all done in bronze. The original was done as a fibula, but we've chosen to do this piece as a pendant. It's about 1 3/4" tall, and the price is $15 in bronze and $35 in silver.

The Lord and Lady Pendant
#SHREW-1; This clever pendant depicts the Celtic Lord, and turned so the other end is up, also depicts the Lady (or vice-versa if you prefer). There is only one pendant shown in the images. The back is arranged with a slider bar so you can switch it without taking it off the chain. It's about 1 1/3" tall, and an inch wide.
The price in silver is $35, and in bronze it is $20.

Ordering

Shipping and handling is $6 per order (not per item) anywhere in the US. Standard shipping is by Priority Mail, so please give me your mailing address, not your UPS address. The $6 doesn't actually cover the cost in many cases, but it's easy to calculate, and is my way of saying "thank you".

Orders in New York State require sales tax. If you don't know the sales tax in your county, I can calculate it for you, but you should expect it to be added. This applies only to orders shipped to addresses within New York State.

I'm sorry, U.S. orders only please.

Most folks use a credit card and the encrypted secure order form. If you prefer, you can FAX your order to 716-731-3715. I'll need the type of card (Discover, Visa, or Master Charge), card number and expiration date. Of course I'll also need to know what you are buying, and where to send it. Please include your e-mail address.

If you don't have a FAX, you can call 716-731-3715. If your timing is good, you can just speak to me and give me the order. If I'm not in the office it will default to the FAX machine. No collect calls.

If instant gratification is unavailable, you can always send a Postal Money Order or check to:

Ragweed Forge
PO Box 326
Sanborn, NY 14132

The Postal Snail may be slow, but he's faithful and discreet. Checks may be held for clearance, so if you're in a hurry, use a money order.

Everything on the page should be on hand and ready to ship. However some items may be short supply, so if you are ordering by mail, you might want to e-mail first so that I can hold your item (ragnar@ragweedforge.com).
