St Bridget's Cross Pendant - small
St Bridget's Cross pendant (small) on 18" chain in sterling silver
Legend: Tradition tells us that as she sat beside her dying father, Bridget was meditating and began weaving a cross, made from the river rushes. Her father saw the cross and asked her to explain its meaning. After Bridget explained the cross' significance he wanted to join the Church and was baptized by St. Patrick before he died. Today, people place a "St. Bridget's Cross" in their homes and farm buildings believing that, with their faith, it protects them and their animals from evil and deprivation.
