This year my Boys and I will work together to make a pair of forged crosses.
We plan on making one necklace sized with a brazed loop for a chain and the other will be a hand held size.
The larger ones are perfect for your coat pocket to carry to church or into the woods.
I will be sure to post some pics along the way but here are a few examples...  -

So my helper this year is my youngest son Trapper, and he loves to work with me around the forge.
A few months ago he and I made our first cross together and He was very excited when I asked him if he would help me make a few crosses for St. Judes.
While waiting for things to warm up I was explaining to him about how this auction works and how it really helps the kids at St. Judes.
Although he is only 7yrs old, I could see he could understand what I was talking about and how every little bit helps.

Step 1 was to get things opened up
 -

Step 2, Get things flattened out and straight
 -
 -

Then we forge in the edges, trim and brush
 -

The larger one of the THREE is about done...
 -

Made by kids for the kids!
