Cross for Andrew
Our nephew, Andrew, is a most loveable young man with a heap of potential and ambition. He is a master tiler who comes complete with a keen eye for aethetics and detail, and has a work ethic that is admirable for someone his age. When he asked me to make a cross pendant for him, I was both honored and apprehensive. After all, despite the rocky road that he travels, I really admire and love him, and I do not want to disappoint him. It is for that very reason that I shy away from custom requests.
With metal, saw, and solder, this was what I came up with:
copper cross soldered onto bronze back plate
and then riveted with sterling rivets
copper bail soldered onto back
leather cord with slip knots
