St. Bridget is one of our most important patron saints of Ireland.

This lovely, fine silver winged pendant is handmade and finished to a very high standard of craftsmanship. In this pendant, St. Bridget is represented by 6 gemstones; Garnet for her tireless devotion and protector of the household and the hearth fire; Moonstone in her capacity as patroness of mothers, children and childbirth; and lastly, the fresh, green gemstone Peridot, showing her as the herald of spring birth and regeneration, protector of farm, crops and livestock, and guardian of the sacred wells, whose waters were said to heal all manner of disease.

Saint Bridget`s feast-day is celebrated on the 1st. of February, which corresponds with the Gaelic festival of Imbolc. Most school children in Ireland bring rushes to school around this time, to make a saint Bridget`s cross; my children would always bring  home a St.Bridget’s  cross every year

Making a St. Brigid’s cross is one of the traditional rituals in Ireland to celebrate the beginning of early spring, 1st February. The crosses are made of rushes that are pulled rather than cut. They are hung by the door and in the rafters to protect the house from fire and evil. According to tradition a new cross is made each St Brigid’s Day, and the old one is burned to keep fire from the house.

Love and blessings,

Linda.
