The cross is associated with the Irish Patron Saint know as Brigid of Kildare. It is believed that a bridgids cross protect a house from evil and fire. This has eveolved so that wearing one protects the person from evil.
Please look at my other listings for more custom pieces. For pendant purchases I also include the choice of either an 18 inch silver plated chain or 30 inches of black waxed cotton cord.
I use the Lost Wax Method of casting so no two pieces are exactly alike. I hand finish all my pieces. My castings are available in ALL precious metals from recycled silver to platinum. I can add stones if you like in most cases just convo me and I will quote a price and delivery time. I have a wide variety of designs as I never know what will influence me from a walk in the woods to one in the city.
I cast all my metaphysical pieces either during the full moon or the new moon so as to give the best energy for the people who want that.
I prepared a lot of pieces to cast during the “Super Moon” on March 19th, 2011 as this is a rare event, the last one being 18 years ago, and wanted to be able to offer the availability of that energy to those who wanted it. They are very limited in quantity but this piece is one of those castings. I am not sure when the next one will occur but until then when these pieces are gone you will have to wait for the next one.
Story of the Christian St. Brigid and her cross VIA WIKIPEDIA
In Christian mythology, St. Brigid and her cross are linked together by a story about her weaving this form of cross at the death bed of either her father or a pagan lord, who upon hearing what the cross meant, asked to be baptized. One version goes as follows:
A pagan chieftain from the neighbourhood of Kildare was dying. Christians in his household sent for Brigid to talk to him about Christ. When she arrived, the chieftain was raving. As it was impossible to instruct this delirious man, hopes for his conversion seemed doubtful. Brigid sat down at his bedside and began consoling him. As was customary, the dirt floor was strewn with rushes both for warmth and cleanliness. Brigid stooped down and started to weave them into a cross, fastening the points together. The sick man asked what she was doing. She began to explain the cross, and as she talked, his delirium quieted and he questioned her with growing interest. Through her weaving, he converted and was baptized at the point of death. Since then, the cross of rushes has existed in Ireland.
