In the year 470, Brigid founded an abbey at Kildare and was Abbess of the convent, the first in Ireland. The foundation developed into a center of learning and spirituality. She is legendary, extravagant and many miracles are attributed to her.
~”For 3 weeks I had been searching for an appropriate Celtic vial. I just kept at it until I happened upon your website and saw the pendant from the well of Brigid for my dear Irish friend Bridget who is an equine masseuse. She was DELIGHTED with the pendant and the instructions that came with it. I will be making many purchases from you now that I’ve found you. The customer service is excellent, by the way and the package was delivered on the Solstice.” – Suzan Green
