Saint Brigid Oval Handmade Porcelain Christmas Ornament
Patron of Ireland and babies.
St. Brigid was born to an Irish Chieftain. She always had a charitable nature and so became the first Irish nun, starting convents throughout Ireland. Her wish was to relieve the hardships of the poor. She is known for the simple cross which she is believed to have woven for a dying pagan chieftain to illustrate the Christian faith. St. Brigid's cross is commonly hung in Irish homes to bless them.
The unique making process of these porcelain pendants allows for more detail in designs than other mediums. These designs are fired into the clay at 1200 degrees, so they will not peel or wear off. Each piece is surprisingly lightweight.
