Saint Bridget's Cross Jewelry

Saint Brigid was born in 450 in Faughart in County Louth as daughter from a slave and Dubhtach the slave owner. She traveled to give relief to the poor and ill. Brigid made the first Saint Brigid's Cross from straw. Saint Brigid's Crosses were hung in houses and barns to protect the buildings against fire and lightning and the inhabitants from illness and epidemics.
