My Story of the Silverware Cross
My name is Marcia Mort and I am a wife and mother. My husband and I grew up in the great northern Michigan area. Since my husband joined the US Army, his assignments often led us back to Clarksville, Tennessee, which is now our home.
In 2012 I joined a club that occasionly had craft events. I set up a table with my crafts; one of the items was silverware wind chimes with an engraved verse on it.
Then in November I was making more wind chimes using spoons, leaving a lot of knives and forks left over. Knowing that all gifts, talents come from the Lord, I prayed near my kitchen table, which doubled as my work area. It was quite late when I prayed, asking the Lord what I could make with my knives and forks. I could see a cross out of the knives and then I had the idea of the fork representing Jesus. These silverware crosses are a God given inspiration. Each silverware cross is crafted using a silverware design process that I developed. Each cross consists of 2 knives and 1 fork with complementary patterns. The knives represent the cross and the shaped fork represents Jesus Christ. The design also includes red Swarovski rhinestones representing Christ’s shed blood, a wired crown, feet and a laser etched inscription on the knife blade.
These vintage or contemporary pattern crosses are then placed in decorative shadow boxes. Each cross is etched with selected Biblical verses.
I have copyrighted my silverware cross process © 2012 MARCIA MORT ALL RIGHTS RESERVED and now sell them at craft shows.
I will never forget the first cross I sold!
These Silverware Crosses are a great reminder, encouragement and keepsake whether they are placed on your table top or hang on your wall.
