No Longer Making This Product - Mary and Driftwood Crosses

These unique crosses are designed by hand from driftwood collected along the beaches of the beautiful Central Coast of California.
Mary, her husband and dogs go on regular adventures to the beaches along the beaches in California, Oregon and Washington.

The beaches are lined with driftwood, shells, stones and other magnificent ocean material.  Each trip to the beach yields a new collection of material used to designed these wonderful crosses.

Each driftwood piece is carefully designed using dried seaweed, various types of Sea Shells including Abalone, beautiful Sea Stones, Moonstones, Jadeite, Sea Glass and driftwood.  Each cross has a different combination of ocean material used in its design. 

The procedure for preparing and designing each cross is more difficult than you would think.  First, the wood has to be selected.  Selecting a the size and the shape of the wood is important.  All driftwood is different and comes from many different sources.  After each piece of wood is examined it has to be dried in an oven.  The drying process kills any creatures that might have taken up refuge on the beach.  The next step is to dry the seaweed and select a decorative piece of shell, stone, or sea glass to place on the cross.  Once everything is in order Mary puts the piece together with great care.

Mary sees driftwood differently than most people.  She says the wood talks to her telling her if it is a cross, Snowman, Santa or some other unique piece.  Her designs have become collectors items throughout the United States.  She has been producing creative carved art for over 30 years and she puts love and attention into each piece she designs.

A cross designed exclusively from sea material will make a fantastic conversation piece.  In addition, the mystery attached to a piece of driftwood makes for great day dreams about where the wood came from and its age.  If driftwood could talk what stories it could tell.

A driftwood cross makes a great decoration for any wall in any setting.  These special driftwood crosses make a great gift for any occasion. 

The cross means different things to different people but all agree it is a symbol of love and sacrifice.  Whatever your believe
