Introducing the 2023 
annual Christmas tree ornament from Ben & Lael.

Limited to only 150 pieces

“In 1986, while I was a student at the New York Studio School, I spent 2 months in Greece studying drawing and painting.  This extended visit immersed me in classical Greek design and started a life-long love with the aesthetic.

The shape of this old-world Mediterranean cross is exquisite and the planishing (hand hammered) marks accentuate and echo the curved outline.

The cross itself is made of solid 18-gauge copper sheet and the hook is hand formed of pure copper wire. Both sides are planished which adds to the long-lasting beauty and the planished surface will reflect the lights on your tree in a dazzling display.”

  -Ben Caldwell

The cross can also be made without the hook so it can be used year-round at your bedside or on a table. Just let us know in the notes when ordering if you would prefer this option.


This delicately handcrafted ornament features Ben's signature detailed craftsmanship and hammer work.  A true keepsake item to be treasured for years to come.
