His and Hers Personalized Bronze Cross Necklaces - With Dark Sterling Silver Chains - Rustic Everyday Jewelry



These handcrafted pure bronze his and her crosses can be personalized with a name, date on the back. They have been hand stamped and hammered to give them a rustic, old world appeal with a modern edge. The sterling silver chains have been deeply oxidized to give them a rich charcoal color then sanded in some areas to reveal a little of the original silver shine.

This his and her set began as a gift for a special couple who then had them blessed before wearing them together. The photo I first posted of these pieces have been highly popular with my clients and so now I've made them available to you as well. The men's cross is approx 1 1/4" x 1" and the woman's is approx 1" x 3/4". The size will vary slightly as they are hand made. Her chain is a choice of a 16" or 18" 1mm ball chain and his is a 20" extra large 2mm ball chain.


How it's made: 

It starts as a clay that can be molded, stamped and textured in any way imaginable. I roll the clay and weigh it for a uniform size. No 2 pieces will ever be the same. It will be perfectly imperfect with raw edges and a rustic, old world feel with texture lines. I then let it dry, sand it to smoothness, and fire in a kiln for approx 9 hours. Once fired, it is solid, pure bronze. I then wire brush it, file and sand it some more. It's rustic appearance comes from a hand hammered texture I add with a texturing hammer in strategic places and when I'm happy with the texture I oxidize the piece to leave dark in the low areas and to highlight the high areas. Finally it goes in a tumbler for a final glimmering polish and to add extra strength. Long 2-3 day process, Yes. But sooooo worth it!!

If you would like a name, initial or date (1 word max) can be stamped on the back of each piece at your request in the message to seller section at checkout. They can each have a different word.
