  • Distressed Copper Cross on Silver Hammered Cross

    Handmade Sterling Silver and Copper Cross, Antiqued, Hammered, Distressed, Rustic, Gift, Stainless Steel Ball Chain

    Cross measures 2 inches in height and 1.25 inches wide

    This comes with a 28 inch antiqued stainless steel ball chain.

    This is a beautiful handmade silver and copper cross, I hand cut the silver and copper from 18 gauge sheet using a jewelers saw. I tumbled the silver cross and hammered the edge, the copper i distressed with a flat edged hammer. Both crosses were antiqued using liver of sulfur then i used a brass brush and fine steel wool to give it the look it has now. To connect the crosses I drilled holes in both pieces and then fit copper wire that fit snug in each hole, then snipped the wire so I had about 1 mm on each side of the cross. Finally, I used a riveting hammer to flatten both sides of the wire attaching the copper to the silver.
