Silver Armenian cross charm

The Armenian Cross represents that I am half Armenian. This is a significant symbol in my life because I grew up in an Armenian church surrounded by this culture, eating middle eastern food and learning about the history of the culture, it has become embedded in my life. This is a silver handmade cross in Armenia that my father gave me and my siblings as his friend made a trip and brought them back. My parents are immigrants from overseas and have met so many different people from different backgrounds and have seen how each of them represent their culture in some way. Having this charm I am able to represent this part of my heritage.
