In Attire

Those two objects/ symbols are a cross and necklace. They were passed to my mom from my great grandma  back in 80’s when my mom was just the same as I am right now. The cross symbolizes our religion,which is Christianity, and the necklace is just a symbol or antique that was passed through some generations in my family. My grandma was wearing this cross since she was a kid , and it was passed to my mom. Therefore , the cross  is not in use anymore , it is just a symbol now that was passed in our family, we can say, as a relic , same as the necklace. The two relics were brought to USA from Ukraine by my family in late 90’s - 2000s.  Even though there is not much history to those two relic symbols , I believe that my family will be passing them to other generations in my family.
