Cross of Life by Illahie Cross of Life by Illahie
Hand-made using techniques that have been around since the Iron Age, the time of the Celts. The base was cast, and then hammered into shape, before further detailing was done by hand to create the final piece.

The pendant is made from 99.9% pure silver. 24kt gold detailing on the knotted cross was applied using the Keum-boo methods, combing heat with pressure to create a bond between the silver and gold.

Cross of Life: The four arms of this cross represent the four stages in your life; birth, youth, adulthood and death. This pendant gives the wearer the strength they need to run the true course of their lives. On the back the engraving reads; ‘Saol fada chugat’ , Gaelic for ‘Long life to you’.

The pendant's very pretty, and I love the meaning behind the symbol. As a believer of life after death, the Cross of Life has major meaning to my life.
