I was more than pleasantly surprised when I received this cross. I liked how the carved out design from afar appeared as though there was an actual image on it. I wear it on an 18 inch chain and haven't removed it yet. The size and weight are perfect but the design truly eye catching. I haven't ever seen anything like this before but that can be said for the many other sterling silver pieces Artbeads has. I must also comment on the packaging and the care that goes into the wrapping, almost as though they're sending a gift which in reality their items are.
It is a simple SS cross and I love it. As a Catholic, I love the stylized appearance and have incorporated it into my designs.
This pendant is going to present a little bit of a challenge. This is the reason I gave it a slightly lower rating than the other products I bought. I am sure it can be dressed up into an interesting design - that will just take an extra little bit of thought to accomplish - I'm thinking...
I purchased this piece as the crucifix for a rosary for my mother.
I think it is the perfect size & weight.
The cut out gives it a modern flare.
