Briget's Cross

This cross is my favorite Irish Craft  perhaps it is the story or perhaps it 
is the way it soothes busy fingers or maybe it is the off balance design which
creates motion. The cross is also fun because it is adaptable to modern 
materials-swizzel sticks in bars-plastic straws  -even hair pins!
In places where I am known these are  now hidden when I arrive! The cross
and its story make a great gift for the drinking or dining partner-host or server!
Check out our new book which contains the greatest collection in centuries of St. Brigid information including the history and varieties of and instructions to make

the cross.
