Our cloak pin knot design is a Manuscript painting of Celtic-Anglo Saxon Origin (Owen Jones) from the book:
'The Styles of Ornament' by Alexander Speltz
Dover Publications
New York 1959 page 108 plate 54 No. 8

showing examples from 7th century until 11th century for items on plate 54.

Quote from one of the attached internet photos regarding the Carolingian Cross: " From the 3rd century the Franks lived north and east of the Rhine River.
By the 5th century their influence had spread into Roman territory and Gaul, which probably explains why their art has stylistic similarities with pre-Christian Celtic knotwork."

The Design principles are the same as in the Carolingian Cross, which was constructed by overlaying circles.
I added the circle around the ornament like in the cross, which symbolizes that god is eternal without beginning without end.
An example for the use of linked chains between cloakpins is in the Catalogue:
'The Merowingian Period'
Europe without Borders
Staatliche Museen zu Berlin
Edition Minerva 2007 page 233
It shows a reconstruction of a costume of a highranking lady at the court of Ravenna.
Quote on same page " Franks were making their presence felt in Northern Italy."

Merowinger period: early 5th century to 751
but also found later evidence from 10th to 14th century for this type of linked cloak pins.

We were unable to find specific evidence for the exact types of chains used.

The chain links, we used, are the dangling pieces from the Russian Viking Needle case pendant, which to us looks like a generic chain:
Bronze; cast. L. 7 cm
Culture of Ancient Rus. 12th century
Barrow, formerly Olonetsk Province, Lodeinopolsky District, the Village of Nikolshchina
Russia
