Several years ago I owned and operated a small fabrication shop, focusing on hand forged functional ironwork. However, several years ago I had to close my shop and make blacksmithing a hobby only. However, one of my favorite things to make and either give away or sell were the Frederick Crosses. Lately, I have had the opportunity to make these crosses once again.

I enjoy making these crosses so much for two reasons. The first is because of the many moving stories I have heard from friends, family and past customers who gave these crosses to others as a gift. They have often been given to others as gifts of encouagement during difficult life moments and trials. The second reason I enjoy making these crosses is the symbolism of both the forging process and the end product. The forging process reminds me how I should should be joyful during lifes trials (even though I find this often difficult to do!). It is through these trials when my faith really grows and matures so that I may lack nothing that my Creator has for me.

Thank you for looking and I hope that these crosses and what they represent are a blessing to you.
(They are approximately 3 1/2" tall)
