Cross Star Believe Necklace, Pearls Copper Bronze Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

What a perfect handmade jewelry gift for the woman who loves wearing one of a kind cross necklaces that are on the smaller side but still large in style!  The main focus of the meaningful BELIEVE necklace is an artisan made, two sided copper bronze cross and star pendant.  Glowing maroon rice pearls and copper impeccably highlight the cross.  The rustic pendant was artisan designed and hand cast from copper bronze.  Bronze is an alloy metal that normally contains copper - in this mixture, there is more copper giving a richer hue to the cross.  In the center of the cross, is a canted, five-pointed star, each arm of the star a different length.  The star is raised against the cross for even more eye-appeal.  The uniquely exquisite cross was lightly oxidized and then polished to bring out the wonderful details.  The back of the pendant is also rustic and has the word “Believe” etched into the metal.  For durability, the cross and star pendant is attached to the main body of the necklace with two heavy duty copper jump rings. 
To perfectly complement the copper bronze cross and star drop, small freshwater rice pearls make up the man body of the necklace. They are called “rice pearls” since they are the shape of rice - but these pearls are somewhat smaller than grains of rice for a beautifully petite vibe.  The color is a rich, radiant maroon, shading from darker to lighter, as you can see in the phoros.  To represent the Holy Trinity, the pearls are in groups of three, each group separated by a small copper bead.  A sleek copper toggle clasp set securely finishes the unique necklace.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog designs, the BELIEVE cross and star pendant necklace will be a meaningful, treasured gift for the woman who adores wearing one of a kind, artisan cross jewelry.

Crosses are a symbol of atonement and a reminder to Christians of God's love in sacrificing his own son for humanity.  Because they shine in darkness, stars symbolize the knowledge of truth and goodness; they are symbols of divinity, intuition, the feminine, hope and guidance.  Pearls are used to spread loving vibrations; they promote sincerity, truth and loyalty. Bronze is said to bring great calmness and deep meaningful thoughts, leading to a far greater insight into life’s problems.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  


The BELIEVE artisan necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
