Small 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 an 18" Chain.
I have been looking for high-quality, unique jewelry from Ireland. I finally found an Artist who creates the type of jewelry that is just right for me. Elena Brennans beautiful jewelry draws from the rich tradition of the Irish culture and legends. I have purchased two necklaces. They arrived quickly. I could track the shipment from the time they left Elenas studio in Cavan until they arrived perfectly packed and in excellent condition. The two pieces I received exceed my expectations. They are even prettier than they appear on the website. Elena worked with me so that I arrived at the chain length. Her attention to her customers and quick response helped me greatly with my first order. Each piece is beautifully presented and would make excellent gifts with the way they are boxed and placed into pretty draw-string bags. I am looking forward to the next pieces I will order from Elena Brennan. My only dilemmahow to choose from all the wonderful offerings in her collections.
Ced mle buochas for such a wonderful review. I'm delighted. It's my absolute pleasure to look after my customers, as I'm so thrilled that my jewellery is picked for special gifts out of all the huge choice that's out there.
Many thanks again for taking the time to leave your review Betsy.
