cross 

Sterling and 14k gold.  Approx. 4.5 inches.

A wedding gift for my son and his wife.  This fairly traditional cross was constructed from two pieces of heavy-gauged square Sterling wire with a bail of 14k gold wire.  It required quite a bit of hand work to get the edges square and sharp.  In order to keep the cleanness I did all the polishing by hand using increasingly finer gritted sand paper then polishing compounds on leather then flannel.  Sometimes the pieces that look the simplest require the most effort.
