thanks for you message. I personally concentrate on botanical themes. I havent seen a lot of crosses in the pictures that jewellers have posted, although I do see them in some of the other contemporary jewellery blogs, especially the spanish ones. If you follow the links to 18kt, mar de color rosa and Klimt02 and look through their previous posts you might be able to find a few jewellers who use the cross, and follow the links to their sites.
It is curious that religious symbology does not seem to be a major feature of contemporary jewellery, especially considering the major link between christianity and jewelllery.
