About St. Brigid & her Cross

St. Brigid is the second patron saint of Ireland, famed for her love and generosity to the poor. 1st of February is celebrated as St. Brigid’s Day. The St. Brigid’s Cross, as legend would have it, came to be when Brigid sat with a dying pagan chieftain, she began to weave rushes into a cross. Brigid used this cross to explain Jesus to the pagan Chieftain, who then asked to be converted and he was baptised just before he died. Traditionally the St. Brigid’s Cross is hung in homes to protect from fire and evil. To read more, please see my blog on St. Brigid and the St. Brigid’s Cross.

Handcrafted in Ireland by Kieran Cunningham, Co. Wicklow.

Kieran Cunningham

Kieran has worked in metal design since 1977 and has developed a unique range of handcrafted modern Irish jewellery. Influenced by Ireland’s rich ancient Celtic heritage. Kieran’s original designs are indiviudally handcrafted from raw materials. He uses sterling silver, yellow gold, brass, copper and alpaca silver. He uses hand-tools to create each piece, including hand-chiseled scroll effects and shining hammered finishes, which are an age-old tradition of Celtic jewellery design. This form of jewellery making has been passed down through the centuries, but with very few jewellers actually using this process, Kieran is keeping this skill alive.
