Gold and Teal Cross

This gold and teal cross is 27 inches long and 17 inches wide. It was created with shades of teal colored traditional glass, antique plates, filigree from an antique lamp, glass gems with a porcelain yellow rose in the center.
Surrounding the yellow rose are porcelain green and sage colored leaves. All silver solder lines were stained with a black patina.
In these two photos you can see what kind of work goes behind making something so beautiful. In the top photo I wrote notes out to the side which were ideas that I thought would improve the overall balance and design. The photo below shows the cross being assembled. It can be a messy process especially when you start working with the flux, which is what I had just finished doing in this photo.
