I have been researching medieval jewellery and have really enjoyed making these crosses. Initiialy I had planned to use fimo to make them but my friend Anona suggested I give salt dough a try just to practice with. I had a bag of plain flour in my cupboard that was way out of date and destined for the bin. It has been put to very good use as a crafting medium and I will even buy a bag of the very cheapest plain flour that I can find in order too use it as a crafting medium.Anyway I digress yet again. The crosses are quite big and chunky and are currently sitting in my workshop where I am blinging them up with crystals and pearls. I have painted them silver and gold and they look really very swish even without the crystals. As soon as they are dry i will update this post to show the end results. I have also been making beads set with crystals as my photo shows. These will be painted silver too and should look really nice when they are finished.
