ABOUT ETHIOPIAN CROSSES
Ethiopian Crosses are beautiful handmade silver crosses made from "coin metal." The artisans smelt old coin and silver into the crosses so they do have a silver content but not enough to be sterling silver. Each cross is then hand cut and polished by various artists so that no two are alike. Because of the silver content, they can be polished up with a clean white fluffy rag to remove patina as needed. Please be careful not to use chemicals cleaners as it will damage the crosses.
