Handcrafted Cross Symbol earrings. Although the cross has come to be a symbol of Christianity, it was both a religious and lucky sign for centuries before the Christian era. It has been found in parts of the world where the message of Christianity never reached. In most pagan religions, the cross represents the tree of life. In some ancient cultures, the crosspiece intersecting the upright piece, represented a ladder that helped a worshiper to reach the divine. In other cultures, the upright pointed the way to heaven and the crosspiece represented earthly influences.
The Ark Collection reflects our desire to connect with these animal totems and carry with us the qualities they embody.
