The legacy of St. Brigid's cross is spiritual and artful. After St. Patrick, St. Brigid is the next most beloved saint on the Emerald Isle. Her heart-felt charity and kindness are renowned, but one experience while attending a dying person gave us a cross image that's still cherished today. The person was of pagan beliefs, but asked Brigid to tell Christ's message. To illustrate the passion of Christ, St. Brigid wove the now famous cross out of river rushes that were lying on the bedroom floor. We are proud to offer you this beautiful interpretation of St. Brigid's cross that is actually made from Ireland's natural river rushes.

Why did St. Brigid's cross become so endeared? The Irish people believe that her cross protects homes from want and evil and hang them above a doorway or window. This St. Brigid's cross measures 9" in diameter and makes a wonderful gift for anyone who is struggling in some way as well as any Irish lore enthusiast. We love that this piece is actually made from authentic river rushes because that allows your imagination to enter St. Brigid's experience of living with heart.
