When I sat at my desk to begin working on something I looked for the crosses I had. I made earrings with a knotted cross and deep red crystals beads. The beads were from a sample pack of different colors I ordered so I kept going with the crystals. The helix shaped crystals have such an unusual appearance. I think it adds a mystical quality to the earrings. In religion I like the mystical part of faith but I seem to have lost it. I had it as a child but now its gone.
