The Celtic Trinity knot

I created this pendant for the Ohio Beaders February Challenge.  The challenge was to create something from ancient civilizations, but I couldn't find anything that attracted me going back further in time than the Celtic knot.
Celtic knots started appearing in history after about 450 AD;

The Celtic knot or the Triquetra symbol is also referred to as the mystic knot, or the endless knot. The more esoteric or spiritual meaning of this symbol eludes to beginnings and endings. Celtic knots have no beginning or end, reminding of the timeless nature of our spirit.
