My dear hubby gave me this stone cross for Christmas. The yard stick was set there as a visual to see how large it is. A man in our area has recently starting making and selling these and he has quite a business going. The cross is actually cut out. The stone is about 1 1/2 inches think and takes 2 people to carry.The white is a template I put it in as I am going to mosaic on plexiglass and install. I am not fond of the idea of seeing my house thru the cross. As soon as I get my cross done and flower bed re-done it will go in my front flower bed. I am anxios to work on it. Hoping to start in a couple of days.

It's beautiful! The stone place up the street does these too. What color will the mosaic be?

If I understand you correctly the shape of the cross is cut entirely through the 1/2 inch depth of the stone? Amazing! It's going to be gorgeous.

That is awesome! What a nice gift from your DH! Can't wait to see how your mosaic looks when you're finished.

I plan to use green, blue, amber and red translucent stained glass. They are sort of shades in the jewel tones. Was limited in my selection at Hobby Lobby and not a fan of ordering on line. My friend orders and about half the time the colors are not as she expected. The worst part will be getting the plex cut and to fit nicely. After that it will be easy and go fast. Hope I don't go thru too many pieces of plexi before I get the right size and not broken!
