Old Rugged Cross Sterling Silver on Leather

 Custom for a friend's son for his 11th Birthday.  I sculpted the cross out of PMC Sterling Silver and fired it in a 1500 degree kiln.  This is the largest piece I've made to date using the PMC Sterling.  I gotta say that working with it feels like magic.  Here you have this lump of clay, you mold it, texture it.  And when it comes out of the kiln, it's this solid piece of silver.  Wow!  Of course my mind has been set off in a hundred different directions with the success of this piece.  I am pleased to have achieved the texture I was going for.  It is 1 1/4" long and 7/8" wide.  14.4 grams.
