The Endless Knot is a universal symbol of peace and enlightenment influenced by the Tibetan Buddhism’s “Eight Auspicious Symbols”. It is often used in jewelry, tapestry, and other art forms. The intertwined lines that overlap without a beginning or an end represent Buddha’s endless wisdom and symbolizes how all life matter on Earth are related to one another due to cause and effect.
This sacred knot also takes on the symbol of duality. Buddhism strongly believes that everyone should find a balance between the feminine and masculine qualities in life. This balance awakens the mind and allows one to view situations in a new light, thus letting go of hatred and ignorance. This new mindset will surely bring one closer to enlightenment.
Get This Look!: To create these earrings, we paired our gold plated endless knot connectors with our faceted almond Carnelian gemstones and sea blue glass beads. We used a 26 gauge wire to wire wrap each section together. As for the moonstone cluster seen dangling above the Carnelian, we used our gold plated ball pins to wire wrap each individual bead from the loop of the Carnelian wrapped stone.
All in all, the endless knot is a perfect to use in jewelry to represent the unity shared among all beings on the planet.
