When I was shopping through the Nina Ramone shop, I knew I just had to have this cross necklace in all its layered and multi-cross glory. I have a strange fascination with religious jewelry btw...they seem to bring such protective power to the wearer.
The designer Dana was telling me more about the "For the Faithful" necklace that I'm wearing...Apparently there's a little superstition behind it.
"While ripping apart vintage jewelry to make other pieces, if they had any type of religious medallion, cross or part of a Rosary, I would save them. I thought if I would dispose of them in any way it could be bad luck. I was even very leery about taking apart a Rosary to use the parts I needed. Once I had quite a few, I decided to put them all together in one design, thus eliminating the bad luck from disassembly and bringing good luck to the wearer."
