"Bridget, Breo-Saighit, Brigit, Brighid, Brighde, Bhride, Bride, Brid"

"Bridget, Breo-Saighit, Brigit, Brighid, Brighde, Bhride, Bride, Brid"

Donald L. Engstrom-Reese has a tribute page to Brigit that features a number of photos of Brigit associations -- The Pride of Poets
,The Clan of the Caduceus, The Guild of Smithies, The Mugwort Clan, The Boar Clan...

As well are some very familiar descriptions of her attributes: "Bridget is often seen dressed sensibly in clothing appropriate to the job She is currently engaged in. Though their is often a bit of decoration on any outfit She chooses to wear. Brid’s beekeeping out fit is stunning. For instance, Her white bee veil is embroidered with hundreds of golden bees. Our Bhride also always keeps a small collection of gowns at hand for those special nights out to the opera or theater. Brid delights in the reds, pinks, yellow, oranges, ivories and blues of spring. But, She also has plenty of dark outfits one may need for a number of those special occasions. Brid delights in honey colored jewels; amber, topaz, diamonds, sapphires, etc. She adores all metals, particularly all well crafted objects of steel. Bridget often wears plain kaki work clothes as She drives through the countryside in Her vintage 1980 Land Rover pickup truck."

Image of Brighde by Anne-Marie Perks: "This watercolour represents my interpretation of Bríghde. This is her as seer, swirling the waters in the bowl that tells her stories around it. I used oil crayons and watercolour in this painting."
