Wood Quay Small Cross with 18K Gold Bead
Wood Quay Small Cross with 18K Gold Bead.
This Small Wood Quay Cross is a unique Celtic Cross.
The beaded surface of this raised Celtic Cross has been oxidized to give it an antique, matte gunmetal appearance. It is then decorated with polished stylized snake symbols. It is also adorned with a Celtic Warrior 18K Gold Bead.
The Wood Quay collection is inspired by Vikings. The Vikings came to Ireland in 795AD and gave Dublin or Dubh-Linn, meaning Black Pool, its name. They were in Ireland until King Brian Boru defeated them in 1014. This happened during the Battle of Clontarf on Good Friday, April 23, 1014. Wood Quay is the site where the remains of a huge Viking settlement was founded in Dublin in the 1970’s.
The Wood Quay collection captures the essence of these Viking warriors and celebrates their creativity. Using silver and pewter they created dress clasps, necklaces, cloak fastenings, brooches, rings and armlets in a variety of shapes and sizes. These magnificent pieces of jewelry have inspired Boru to create the Wood Quay Range.
This Small Wood Quay Cross is sterling silver with an 18K Gold Bead in the center. We also have plenty of Celtic Warrior Rings to go with this Celtic Cross.
