The vertical and horizontal members of this handmade Celtic Cross gently tapers out from the center to the widest width at the outer edge of the circle and remains at this width to the throughout the length, ending in a square base. This outward expansion to the ring can be seen as an exuberant sharing and generous giving of the Love of Jesus radiating the Christ Energy outward. The squared ends invoke the foundation and stability that a life with Christ brings to one’s heart.
The circle connecting the members has been mortised away to accentuate the cross.
There is one variation of the Simple Cross (no Celtic ring). Any of the sizes can be made without the ring, if this is your preference, please order the size you wish and add a note requesting we make it a Simple Cross.
