Manna Cross

Regular price $195.00

This necklace gets its name from manna, the “bread of life” and is inspired by the ancient Christian monasteries populating the shores of Lake Tana in Ethiopia. Steeped in mystery and legend, these old churches serve as treasure houses and sanctuaries for their monastic residents and visitors alike. When designing the Rift Collection, I looked to these romanticly colorful sanctuaries for creative inspiration and what emerged were a handful of truly authentic, bold and spiritually inspiring pieces.

The Manna Necklace features a stunning combination of turquoise blue Ethiopian padre beads and an original cast bronze Ethiopian coptic cross.


Materials include

  • Cast bronze Ethiopian coptic cross
  • Turquoise blue Ethiopian padre beads
  • Carefully hand-strung on raffia cord
  • ~26” long
