Celtic Cross -- 3-1 Tutorial »
InstructionsThe Crosses I offer for sale have a setting soldered into the center to hold the stones. This is not a technique that is typical for most maillers of wire jewelry makers to possess and I do not offer instructions as to how the setting is done. Instructions for the Cross itself however, ARE currently available.
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Ethnic, Classic, Religious, Goth, Eco-Friendly, Formal / Bridal, Traditional, Casual
Sterling Silver and Amethyst
What was your inspiration?
I made these Crosses on a whim. I wanted to see if it was possible to make a Cross using the byzantine chainmaille weave. I think this is a beautiful piece.
What are you most proud of?
That I was able to not only make and sell the Crosses, but that I was also able to write the instructions well enough that anyone with a bit a patience can make the base Cross. I am also really proud that I have been able to take this wonderful starting point and go in other directions with it, such as adding set stones, and making then in 5 sizes, in at least 3 different metals and also being able to provide kits for the Crosses so just about anyone can have one without a large investment and lots of leftover materials.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Go for it. The directions have tons of pictures, so you can follow along both in words and images. If you don't know if you will like doing maille, I have kits available in my Etsy shop so you can try it out without a large investment.
