Such a unique piece of Cross Bottle Guy work, inspired by the beautiful antique Ball Ideal Mason jar vessel it sits atop. Found while hand sourcing other bottles for our art, this Ball Ideal Mason jar stuck out as a beautiful piece that needed to be displayed. Several options ran across the head of Cross Bottle Guy, but he settled on this one, making full use of the jar and glass lid.
With the beautiful aqua blue hue of the lid of the jar as its center, this cross is composed of our extra large multi-faceted Swedish teardrop crystals, and accented by our smaller hand-cut teardrop prisms, and Russian octagonal crystals. It's a unique, absolutely one of a kind piece that is large enough to stand alone by itself, or be the centerpiece of any Cross Bottle Guy collection.
Sealed for eternity, the cross is married to the jar with our stoic metal work finished in our signature mercerized rust patina.

Picking our favorite bottle would be like a parent picking a favorite child, we know we shouldn't, but sometimes you just can't help it! This lovely creation is certainly our favorite of this weeks creations in the studio! Made from unique teardrop prisms we were only lucky enough to find 5 of, this one-of-a-kind creation will officially be retired due to the inability to source additional antique prisms.

Stunning hand-cut and hand-polished multi-faceted large teardrop prisms made a beautiful five piece crystal cross, centered on five of our Russian octagonal crystals and further embellished by our German squares turned on edge, hugged by more fiery octagonal beauties. Truly mesmerizing, refracting light and rainbows throughout the room.

We've always viewed our handmade work as art, and believe that all of our pieces have a styling synonymous with the Cross Bottle Guy moniker. We take a lot of time, first in creating our crystal crosses, then in finding a suitable vessel to marry the crystal cross to, even if that means we have to wait until the right bottle comes along to fit the crystal art. That's exactly what happened when we finished this gorgeous crystal cross made from crystals inspired by antique Moorish architecture. These hand-cut and hand-polished crystals are so unique, and are exquisitely finished to create stunning brilliance and refractory.

Accented with our small Russian octagonal prisms, this one-of-a-kind master work sat in our studio waiting for the perfect bottle to come along for quite a while, until we found this stunning antique ribbed bottle with the most gorgeous light amethyst coloring! Long and slender, the feminine silhouette perfect suited the crystal cross with it's strong, masculine, linear lines. The perfect juxtaposition of two primal bookends, this finished piece is finished in our signature mercerized rust patina, and draped in a beautiful rosary of antique wood beads.  

A wonderful piece of art, large and impressive, perfect for the center of any growing collection, or perhaps as a stand alone piece of Cross Bottle Guy art sculpture.

These beautiful leaf shaped prisms are extremely rare, and when we are lucky enough to come across them here at Cross Bottle Guy, they always make the most beautiful cross bottles! This one is no exception.

A large piece, sure to bring a glow to any room of your beautiful home, this is certainly one to add to your collection! 

The cross isn't the only rare piece, however.
