A Merry Heart
Variation II
Tortoise Glass, Bronze Cross
Handmade Necklace

"He that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast." 
   -- Proverbs 15:15

This delightful Coptic cross is made in two parts, and hinged.  The four little birds are a traditional element of the old Ethiopian design;  the interlaced pattern is reminiscent of Celtic knotwork.   It's hand-cast from a 19th century original, in solid bronze.

One strand of matte tortoise Czech pressed glass, and two strands of tiny beads each handformed of bronze. 

The clasp is cast of solid bronze.

Hinged Cross:  about 2.5" including the loop 
Length:  about 21"

$252. (Sold. For a similar necklace, please inquire.)
