Crosses and Crucifixes
For over thirty years I have been using traditional methods to make the finest quality hand wrought Crosses and Crucifixes and other ecclesiastical and ceremonial silver, both for the home market and for export all over the world. I am able to use my vast experience as an ecclesiastical silversmith to make Crosses and Crucifixes to personal designs and specifications, produce replicas of existing pieces or copies of items which have been lost.
"The cross is often shown in different shapes and sizes, in many different styles. It may be used in personal jewelry, or used on top of church buildings. It is shown both empty and in crucifix form, that is, with a figure of Christ, often referred to as the corpus (Latin for "body"), affixed to it. Roman Catholic, Anglican and Lutheran depictions of the cross are often crucifixes, in order to emphasize that it is Jesus that is important, rather than the cross in isolation. Many Protestant traditions depict the cross without the corpus, interpreting this form as an indication of belief in the resurrection rather than as representing the interval between the death and the resurrection of Jesus.
I also have vast expertise and experience in the restoration and repair of Crosses and Crucifixes and other ecclesiastical ceremonial silverware.
