The cross symbolizes many things but arguably the most important is that we are all Loved. Cross made of recycled steel drum, hanging together on a leather necklace with a local clay bead and aluminum piece stamped with "LOVED".
The Steel Drum Art of Haiti has been famous for decades throughout the world. Metal from recycled steel drums is cut, flattened, and put into a fire to be made malleable. Then the artisan traces the pattern onto the flat piece, and with chisel and hammer in hand, starts the tapping that cuts away all that is not the image. Our jewelry team puts the cross made with this method together with the other elements to make this wearable piece of art!
