Description

SMALL TRADE CROSS (Double bar Cross of Lorraine) – these little trade crosses were very popular with the indians, especially the Objibwe who traded them for beaver pelts and supplies with the trappers. The indians prized them and wore them as earrings. These were very thin so we backed two together for strength, making sure both original slices, front and back were showing.
