Rowan Altar Cross
These lovely little Rowan Crosses are approx 7.5 cm by 7.5 cm. This makes them a nice size for adding to Altars for added protection.
Rowan Crosses formed by tying two equal length pieces of Rowan together to form a cross are believed to be powerful amulets of protection.
The wood has been partly smoothed, making them very tactile.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE CROSSES ARE INDIVIDUALLY MADE, MAKING IT UNLIKELY THAT THERE WILL BE TWO IDENTICAL CROSSES MADE.
