The next step was to add jeweled headpins along the top of the cross. Glue was added just below the head and the wires folded tight behind and glued down to the cross. Wings and a silver crucifix were added as were beads with roses,some glass and a pair of skull beads. Finally a brass cross was glued and riveted on the back to cover the wires and add some strength.
The whole project was easy to do and because the style is folk inspired there are really no rules. Looking back I will make the top of heavier material next time and perhaps be more lavish with the etching.
Give Milagros Cross making a try. Maybe it will foster a miracle for you
