With all the naive charm of older, less refined pieces, this large cross is all about the size and the turquoise. Heavenly blue and all natural, each oval cabochon is lovingly set so that the sizes range from smaller at the ends to the largest in the center. This adds a natural grace to the piece, where the sterling is merely the support for the turquoise. Little silver domes once added sparkle, between the stones, and can be gently rubbed to gleam softly again, without making the cross look new. There is a shepherd’s hook in back, but this would look just as beautiful hanging on a wall. A lovely. heartfelt piece from the past. Wouldn’t this be a perfect gift for a minister or priest – or one in training?!
