ABC Wednesday - F

(The Wordless Wednesday post is beneath this post.)


F is for Faith .......




silver cross with celtic caarvings



This silver cross pendant is made of fine silver.

It has the most beautiful design pattern embossed on both sides of it.

It reminds me of a Celtic design.

The flared ends also have intricate carvings.

I used several backgrounds, including a black velvet, but the grain of the linen fabric seemed best suited with the silver.

I also experimented with an all white, but the shadow leading into the image gives it more atmosphere.

The bare white is desirable for stock images, but I'm keeping this one more artistic.

  7. That's what I was thinking, a Spanish shipwreck treasure.

    Kathy - Have you ever thought of putting the Mister Linky box on your WW posts? I did it on mine and it encourages a lot of new visitors each week.

    I have instructions on my site linked from this post.

  17. I agree, Kathy, that the varied whites in the background add atmosphere and interest. I like that the background has both cool and warm tones. The cross is beautiful. Is it an antique, maybe? So much detail...
