Sterling Silver and Picasso Stone Cross
This hand fabricated cross was formed from a framework of sterling silver strips soldered to a sterling backplate. The shape was then carefully cut out with a jewery saw and a bale was fabricated and attached. Using the silver framework as a template, pieces of stone were cut to precisely fit in the channels formed by the silver framework. After securing the stone pieces with epoxy, the stone surface was ground down to expose the silver. After touch-up filing, the piece was polished with both diamond polish for the stone and then with silver polish. The cross is available alone or with an 18" or 20" sterling chain.
