The Savior pocket cross is now a permanent addition to our Faith Collection. These crosses are 100% handmade in SoCal, USA.
The Savior cross was originally a custom one-off creation. I really didn’t have intentions to make more but the positive responses were so overwhelming that we decided to make it a part of the “Faith” family. However, there is one caveat... because each cross is individually handmade and time consuming to make, their availability will be limited to custom orders or as made available.
Each Savior cross is handcrafted with a select metal exterior wrapped over an exotic wood or custom composite. There are four hand made rivets used to permanently secure everything together. The outside material usually consists of a 16 guage sheet of brass, copper or silver stock which is hand-cut with a jewelers saw. Once the outside shape is cut, the cross secured onto the center material using a thin layer of adhesive to help align and provide a preliminary bond. After the adhesive cures, rivets are then added to permanently secure all the materials together. Next, the center material is cut down and shaping continues. Various grades of sanding are used to ensure an even & smooth surface. The final stage is all about polishing. There are several stages of polishing depending on materials selected and the desired finish. It may sound simple but the truth is quite the opposite. You would be surprised as to the amount love and labor that goes into such a small piece.
