Alesa’s “FUN” Projects!
Beautiful Wood Crosses
The Dangerous Collection uses sharp broken glass, broken mirror, broken pottery, bits to create art.
Cross sizes vary. For example the RR track cross is 18 x 25. Dangerous Fiesta is 13 x 15.
The jewelry collection can be new, used, antique, or even broken parts of jewelry. I used lots of Mother’s old jewelry, and my old jewelry on the beginning crosses in the jewelry cross category. The supply of unique elements to create a cross is endless and can be made into very personal, unique, one of a kind art.
Sizes vary, even though they all look the same size in this collection. For instance the cross near my fathers photo is 16 x 20, & jewel cross with a butterfly at the top is 11 x 13.
Natural Wood Eagle Cross … Bird Nest & Nature Art
This is one of a kind ART. the wood is naturally left to be what I saw in the unembellished raw wood. I defined a few lines to let others see what I initially saw. This one of a kind cross resides in a house of a good friend. (size: 7 x 5)
