Passion Flower Ivy Cross Necklace Christian Handmade Religious Jewelry

Item Description

Filled with fascinating religious symbolism, the one of a kind DEVOTION necklace is perfect for the woman who loves to wear meaningful Chrsitian cross jewelry.  The handmade necklace features a flower and ivy cross pendant and faceted black onyx.  The exquisite cross, with a definite Celtic vibe, was artisan designed and hand poured from lead and cadmium free Britannia pewter, an ancient pewter used in Roman times that can be mistaken for heirloom sterling silver due to its brilliant mirror-like sheen.  In the center of the cross is a passion flower that has considerable meaning:  the circle of hairlike filaments above the petals represents the crown of thorns Jesus wore on the day of his death; and the five petals and five petal-like sepals represent the ten apostles who remained devoted to Jesus. Curving ivy fills the rest of the cross design as a symbol of faithfulness, love, friendship and eternal life.  The cross was lightly patinated and then polished to a high gloss to highlight all the incredible details.  The back of the pendant is smooth, engraved with the maker's mark and the year the cross was designed.  A heavy duty sterling silver jump ring securely attaches the cross to the main body of the necklace.
Complementing the cross pendant to perfection are sparkling AAA quality black onyx round gemstones.  The black onyx is micro-faceted for amazing glitter every time the angle of the light changes.  The AAA onyx is arranged in groups of three, representing the Holy Trinity, with a single black onyx bead and sterling silver beads separating each group.  A textured sterling silver hook clasp set finishes the necklace beautifully.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the DEVOTION cross pendant necklace was created for the woman who has a deep, abiding faith and loves to wear one of a kind cross jewelry with special symbolism.

Crosses are a symbol of atonement and reminds Christians of God's love in sacrificing his own son for humanity.  Passion flowers represent the passion of Christ.  Often carved on Christian tombstones, ivy is a symbol of faithfulness, love, friendship and eternal life.  Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  Black Onyx is believed to be a powerful protective stone and helps bring balance to mind and body; it helps the wearer approach a task with greater self confidence. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.  

The DEVOTION cross pendant 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!
