This pendant is a small sterling silver celtic crosses that are 2.5cm long. There is a large irish population here in Montreal, and no one was making jewellery in this style. So I decided to do it! These are from a collection of master designs I got from a retiring jeweller here in Montreal. The original design dates from the 40's-50's, but I made a new mold and started making them in sterling silver and bronze.
The Celtic cross is a form of Christian cross featuring a nimbus or ring that emerged in Ireland and Britain in the Early Middle Ages. A type of ringed cross, it became widespread through its use in the stone high crosses erected across the islands, especially in regions evangelized by Irish missionaries, from the 9th through the 12th centuries. A staple of Insular art, the Celtic cross is essentially a Latin cross with a nimbus surrounding the intersection of the arms and stem. Scholars have debated its exact origins, but it is related to earlier crosses featuring rings. The form gained new popularity during the Celtic Revival of the 19th century; the name "Celtic cross" is a convention dating from that time. The shape, usually decorated with interlace and other motifs from Insular art, became popular for funerary monuments and other uses, and has remained so, spreading well beyond Ireland.

The stock items I make are mostly made in either sterling silver or antique bronze. The sterling silver, or .925 silver as some know it as, is 92.5% fine silver and 7.5% copper which is the classic sterling silver. No rhodium or nickle plating touches my stuff! The antique bronze is the classic bronze that the bronze age was named for. It contains 90% copper and 10% tin. The bronze can turn your skin green due to the oxidization caused by the copper to the salt and sweat of your skin, but can be easily rectified with either clear enamel or the classic clear nail polish trick! I also offer custom orders in gold and in stainless steel, so if you see something in my shop you want in either, let me know!
Sadly no. The cost of sterling silver and bronze chains would end up raising the price of my jewellery, so in stead I sell them separately on my shop section for chains and engraving.
