Baseball Cross - Work In Progress

Baseball Cross - Work In Progress

I carved this Baseball Cross out of wax and used this to create a sterling silver version. Sandcasting is great fun and it's always exciting at the end to open it up and see the results. Now it just needs some clean up, a jump ring bail added and ready to go.

When I first met my husband he wore this wooden tree pendant all the time. When I inquired about it, he told me he had carved it by hand and had been wearing it for years. 
He quit wearing it awhile back and I thought about it the other day, wondering where it was. I dug around and found it. I cast it in sterling silver for him. It weighs 26 grams. He loved it.
