Christmas, take 5

For those who don't know, this is an Irish symbol, called Claddagh. The hands stand for friendship, the crown stands for loyalty, and the heart stands for love!
(The very first piece of jewelry Claude every bought me was an Irish wedding band, aka Claddagh!). I love the absolute beauty in what it stands for!
Everytime I pull this ornament out and hang it, I'm reminded of that first Christmas gift I received from my wonderful husband!
I am so blessed!

I have never seen one of those as an ornament before.
