Hand forged, this beautiful and large metal cross is one of only a few we were able to procure. Each is slightly different than the other, giving each one the beautiful soul of a handmade piece. Highly detailed on the front, the cross measures just over 4" tall, nearly twice the size of our incredibly popular pewter rosary crosses. 

This antique paean to Christ was the effort of a novice metal worker, but the tremendous overall presence of this stunning cross couldn't be more perfect for the rough/luxe mix that we have established here at Cross Bottle Guy. 

Forever married to an antique embossed bottled, and finished in our signature mercerized patina. A beautiful piece for any collection, and the perfect gift!

Another rarity in our little studio, these large magnifying glass teardrop crystals! We have only used these a couple of times, and it was to make our popular peacock shape pendant tops for the ink wells. Of course, when working with such beautiful raw pieces for our art, inspiration strikes in the best of ways.

We created this lovely little four point cross with those big and unique lovelies centered on a small and beautifully refractive octagonal crystal from Russia. The empty space was filled with gorgeous ice pendants, and voila. A whole new cross for 2020!
