My latest addition to my lines of artisan silver jewelry are small crosses. I made the very first ones just with the birthstones for my 2 little nieces Baptism. I love it because each handcrafted cross is one-of-a-kind like their little personalities. I made a couple of extra ones where I combined the silver cross with little white freshwater pearl. They looked really beautiful and I sold them right away! Actually I sold them to adults. :-)

So now I decided to make a few more and one customer and friend decided to combine the little cross with a small LoveLetter Charm initial and personalized the gift for a nieces' First Holy Communion. It looks so so pretty!! And you can add a birthstone as well or just a pearl. Of course you can use these crosses for other occasions too. An other occasion is the Confirmation. In Germany where I come from you often give a gift of jewelry for the birth of a baby. And because these little crosses are so popular I just added them as regular charm to my LoveLetter Collection. The customer is the designer and create their own Charm necklace!

I never get bored. I always have some other idea that "needs" to be done. So it is more the opposite that I can never do all the things I would like to do...
But I try to follow an advice from my mother: "Just do one after the other".
Oh, and I have posted a couple of these crosses on Etsy, in case somebody is interested in buying one....
