"Perfect for grandsons confirmations"

I purchased a couple of these beautiful, finely made cross necklaces to give to my grandsons at their religious confirmations. I think they are masculine, subtle reflections of their faith, and creative!

"Simple, yet touching!"

What a beautiful and simple statement regarding the 'Pasion of our Lord'! To me, this cross represents the humble life of a carpenter who was also much more - The Son of God, who also would suffer for the sins of the world - in many ways including nails - nails not designed for reinforcement of structures, but rather for the destruction of one's life. Humility blessed with true strength.... this cross represents the completeness of Jesus' life, on earth! Wonderful and I shall cherish this one, as I do my Eucharistic Ministry rounds at a local hospital and nursing facilities, or wherever I'm asked to go. Thank you for this unique, simple and beautiful expression of God's love for us all! W>

"Beautiful and Unusual"

This is one of the most unique crosses I have ever seen and really reminds you of the cruelty of crucifixion.

"Lovely for my granddaughter!"

These earrings boast a lot of color but arent heavy or too big for my tween-age granddaughter (she loves dangles but some are just too big). They are well-made!
