When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

by cecylia on November 16, 2012

Some eye-candy hand-picked from Parisian Street Society for your viewing pleasure:

Hanna Bernhard Baroque Cross Necklace
Vintage Christian Lacroix Cross Heart Brooch
Vintage 70s Christian Dior Pink & Jade Cabochon Cross Brooch
Dominique Aurientis Long Cross Necklace
Vintage Chanel Etruscan Cross Earrings
Vintage Christian Lacroix Cross Pendant featuring Flower & Butterfly
Vintage Chanel Etruscan Cross & Bell Brooch Pendant
 

Isn’t it interesting that the an executional device as crude and cruel as the crucifix would become the symbol of peace? How does it exude such unsurpassable style unless it really was transformed from being the ultimate method of condemnation to the emblem of miraculous resurrection?

Have a blessed weekend lovelies. I can’t wait to show you my posts next week!

你会不会觉得很奇怪为什么十字架,一个那么粗野并残忍的死刑具会变成和平的代表?为什么十字架那么有气派?除非它真的从处罪的刑法真的变成奇妙复活的象征。。。

祝你过个愉快的周末。我好期待下周快到能给你看我新写的博客!

Great post with featuring how the cross has been integrated into several peoples outfits.

Its used very common in jewelry but also has some cross designs in things like handbags & shoes.
