About Brizel's Apple Wood Brigid Crosses...

Handcrafted & individually unique, I make these from homegrown apple wood which I prune and sew together with colorful hemp twine. They are an original adaptation of a very ancient pre-christian Celtic tradition. Brigit Crosses are solar symbols, equal armed and stretching in four directions, which symbolically encourages the strength of the Sun through our front doors and into our homes. It is a talisman, usually hung above the inside of the front door or near the hearth, and it is believed to bring protection, blessing, fertility and prosperity into our households.

Also known as St. Brigid’s Crosses, they are traditionally made from woven straw or rushes gathered on January 31st, the eve of St. Brigit’s Day. Crosses from the previous year are burned & replaced with new ones affirming the old saying: “Out with the old, and in with the new”.

Every year come January, I prune my apple trees. This is a special grouping of trees, eighteen in total and each one bearing a different variety of fruit. The apple orchard is planted in a huge spiral, with lavender bushes between each, and with a large path that winds around them. When the small budding branches are pruned, they are cut to size and allowed to dry for one year. The following year, during the Imbolc season, the apple wood Brigit Crosses are sewn together using colorful hemp.

Brizel’s Brigit Crosses are especially made for home blessing and house protection <3

I loved this basket the second I saw it! I very much appreciate hand made items in my home and for personal use and this piece is obviously created with a lot of love and care. It's even prettier in person, and it makes me smile every time I look at it! Communications from this shop are warm and friendly, and my basket arrived quickly and well packed. Highly recommend this artist!

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
There are currently two ways to process your payments- 1- through Paypal or 2- through Etsy's Payments system. If you wish to make your payment via mail, I am happy to accept a money order from the post office. Please Contact Me so that I may set up that third payment option for you.

The speediest way to check out is with items from my shop only in your cart then pay for them through Paypal. You do not need a Paypal account in order to pay through Paypal's secure system... you can select that method and check out *as their guest* paying with your credit card.

Etsy's Payments system is more diverse because it has more options but payments may take longer to process with their third party processor. If you choose to check out with multiple shops at the same time... or you select another form of payment than Paypal - your payment will go thru via Etsy Payments and may take up to 48hrs to process. More often than not though it goes through right away.

I will be in touch once your payment has cleared to give you a ship out date which will be approx. 1-2 business days after the payment has processed.

PS... If your shipping address is within California... tax will automatically be added to your invoice.
