MATTE BEADS OF MOSS 
INDIGO, AMETHYST, BURGUNDY
The beaded necklace is a random collection of 11mm iridescent seeds, hexes, small brass trades and sterling faceted beads which fall into a single, delicate but sturdy strand. The moss, indigo, amethyst and burgundy matte beads give it a naturally aged patina of many years. The beads are strung on a wire made up of 49 strands of stainless steel that is plied. Very supple and very strong. 
+
The cross or crucifix is hand cast from an antique piece in sterling silver and solid bronze that has been antiqued to restore original patina. The clasp is cast from a vintage piece.

The varying bead lengths, textures and colors give a powerful background to the pendant, which is worn by men and women, young and old alike. (Our grandson and his dad, a very tall and athletic man each have one in the choker version and wear it all the time).   The sturdy but delicate clasp is cast from a hand made piece.

 ~ SYMBOLISM ~
CROSS of the APOSTLES

DOVE
... that appears above the Cross of the Apostolate symbolizes the Holy Spirit, personal love of God.
 LARGE CROSS
 ... is the symbol of our human condition that Christ wished to make His in order to free us  from misery, pain and death, the consequences of sin.
 HEART
  ... at the center of the cross, surrounded by flames, wounded by the lance, crowned with thorns and shedding blood and water from the wound, symbolizes the love of Christ for his Father and us.
 SMALL CROSS
 ... expresses the personal and most intimate pain of Jesus: His sorrow as Son at not seeing  His Father's love reciprocated, His sorrow at the suffering of man that, due to sin, does not live in love, His sorrow for the unfaithfulness of those most intimately associated with His work of salvation.
Your Sister in Christ. Kathleen A. Schwahl

I love it and G-d bless all of you lovely ladies and your apostolate. I can only hope people notice my necklace so I have the chance to evangelize a little ..... Pax tecum Charles Seargent Jr (NY)

... Holy Spirit Cross is beautiful!  ...
The necklace is sized just right and looks just wonderful!   Your workmanship is just so amazing!  I love the clasp! And the Holy Spirit Cross is beautiful! My husband commented on it which amazed me because he is usually at that stage where he rarely notices what I am wearing. But out to dinner he said, "that is the most beautiful  necklace you have on! I proudly told him "my ladies" made it!   From a Friend (NY)
