Céile Dé Prayer Beads - St John's Cross

Back to Main Paidirean Page

This is a stunning piece. It is a double-sided and completely faithful representation of the St John's cross that stands before St Columba's Shrine on the Isle of Iona.

The original caste of this heavy silver cross was created by the legendary Iona silversmith Alexander Ritchie a hundred years ago; the tradition remains in the family line; the original casts are still being used by Mhairi Killin of AosDana Silversmiths on Iona. The antique-finished cross bears the exclusive Iona hallmark
