On my last trip to Santa Fe, I purchased this beautiful necklace from a lovely artist who creates each unique piece herself. The Jerusalem Cross dates back to the late 13th century, used as the emblem and coat of arms of the Kingdom of Jerusalem. I wear it often, and one day thought, what an interesting piece of subject matter it would make. In its simplicity, centered on the canvas, the subject is very noble and commanding as it emerges from the dark shadows.
