Long St. Bridget's Cross Pendant
A St. Bridget's cross is traditionally made from rushes or straw. It is believed that the cross protects the home from fire.
Legend tell us an old pagan chieftan lay delirious on his deathbed in Kildare. His servants summoned Bridget to his bedside, in the hope this saintly woman might be able to calm his restless spirit. As she sat by his bedside, trying to calm and console him, she picked up some of the rushes and started weaving them together, eventually forming a cross. As she worked she explained the meaning of the cross to the sick man; how Jesus had died to save all people, including him. Her calming words brought peace to his soul. He was overcome by the idea that he could be loved so much and was converted to Christianity before he died.
This sterling silver St.Bridget's cross protects the wearer and is suitable for both male and female. It has beautiful wooden effect detailing on both sides and is hung on a 16" or 18" Chain. (Please specify which length when ordering).
I cannot praise Elena enough for her quality of work. I have a pair of angel wing earrings that I purchased last year and I love them and wear them every day. Since then I have also purchased a children of lir bangle that was a gift for someone's significant birthday and the contact I had with Elena regarding this was second to none. The recipient of the cuff was overwhelmed with it as it had a special meaning for her.
I am now the proud owner/wearer of the St. Brigit's cross which I received as a gift and I explained the reasons why I was looking for it and the empathy and compassion that I received from Elena was just so lovely. I cannot recommend this lady and her beautiful jewellery enough. Apart from being a business , you also get a very personal dealing with Elena too. I am thrilled with my new chain and will wear it every day.
Thank you Elena
