Every day in my studio, I go about the business of handcrafting rings or crosses or maybe a set of earrings. Each thing is bound to be one of a kind because I craft each item one at a time.

Maybe it's just too much coffee or not enough coffee, but sometimes I look at a piece to ensure it makes the grade to share; I ponder whether or not if I offered Jesus a cross would He wear it?

If it's just made out of driftwood, would that fit a King? Is a beautiful silver or gold cross too ostentatious for a peasant? Is a resin cross somehow too unnatural ?

A lot of weird questions, I hope someday if I get to meet Him he'll give the answers. I wonder if he'll be wearing one of my crosses.

Essentially there are 2 types of Christian crosses; the crucifix and the cross without a corpus (body). This difference came with the reformation and the desire for the new protesting Christians to differentiate themselves from Roman Catholics.

Regardless of this major difference, after handcrafting hundreds of designs of Christian crosses, Christian bracelets, Christian earrings, and Christian earrings, and Christian rings, my position on the question of the "right look" is that there is no "right look".

As to materials, I use silver, gold, wood, stone, candles, leather brass, and copper anything goes.

Whatever cross or cross-themed item that helps you walk stronger in your faith, is the right one for you.

Blessings - Scott

Being a Christian in a world that is increasingly non-Christian or anti-Christian requires courage. Without question, the Christian cross is the symbol of our faith. Wearing that symbol provides us with a straightforward statement that says " I am a follower of Christ". Sound pretty simple but it isn't. Never before in the history of Christianity has it faced such hostility. Never before has it experienced such apathy. With that reality, many followers have taken to hiding their faith. Closet Christians are a growing congregation. Here's a way of getting my point. The next time you are at a checkout in a store, wear a cross on the outside of your clothes. See how many people do a double-take when they see your cross. You have no idea what they are thinking but at the very least they see you as a Christian. When I handcraft my pieces be they crosses, bracelets, earrings, or rings I do so to provide the wearer with means of coming out of the cross closet to say with love (not conceit or hostility) I am a follower of Jesus Christ.
