I reckon we all have crosses to carry in these beautiful and complex lives of ours -- the point is to bear the burden and not become the burden.
I made myself the prototype of this necklace to wear while in Puerto Rico in February. I.wore.it.every.single.day. I snorkeled in it -- a couple little barracudas eyed it up while I swam past them and drifted over the magic of the reefs. I wore it beach combing. I wore it on the back of an island horse as we walked across black sand under the coconut palms. I wore it as I strolled the oceanside cemetery. It wore beautifully on its own, layered with other necklaces, over my dresses and shirts or tucked in so that the chain disappeared down into the mystery of my personal topographies. It's a beautiful piece. After enjoying this design for a month I cannot imagine my jewelry collection without it.
This is a deceivingly simple looking pendant featuring a trio of heavily textured, chunky square crosses but this piece is made beautiful by the movement and weight of the pendant and further elevated by the luxe chain I chose for it. This necklace is timeless in the truest sense of the word and made for everyday wear to help remind you that the load is lighter than you think.
Pendant length: Slightly more than 2.5 inches.
Chain: About 28 romantic inches with a handcrafted s-clasp.
