CREDO CROSS - The Apostle's Creed can be found in use as early as 6th century. By the end of the 12th century a decree was issued commanding the priests to urge the people to recite frequently the Lord’s Prayer, the Creed and the Salutations to the Virgin. The Creed was usually said on a cross form that was incorporated into the prayer beads and became known as the credo cross.
MOP - Mother of Pearl is "nacre" the substance that coats pearls and makes up the lining of some of the mollusc family of shells, such as oyster and nautilus. So....Mother of Pearl is basically, a pearl without all the irritation! Pearls have long been associated with love and the Mother Goddess, as well as Protection and Good Luck
