Brigid Cross Pendant
Handcrafted pewter pendant, complete in a gauze pouch with a length of black cotton cord. Traditionally the Bridget Cross is connected to the Festival of Imbolc, or Candlemas, celebrated at the beginning of February.
Imbolc is traditionally the great festival and honouring of Brigid (Brighid, Bride, Brigit), so loved as a pagan Goddess that her worship was woven into the Christian church as St Bridget. She is a Goddess of healing, poetry and smithcraft. She is a Goddess of Fire, of the Sun and of the Hearth. She brings fertility to the land and its people and is closely connected to midwives and new-born babies. She is the Triple Goddess, but at Imbolc she is in her Maiden aspect.
